After a new pay deal was rejected, British Airways “mixed fleet” cabin crew are set to strike on January 10th – 11th.
As part of an ongoing dispute over pay, British Airways’ “mixed fleet” cabin crew are set to go on strike on January 10th after a new pay deal offered by BA was rejected. The strike will take place for 48 hours, from January 10 to January 11.
Flights to and from London Gatwick, London City and London Stansted airports will not be affected by the action; British Airways’ Mixed Fleet Unite cabin crew operate flights to and from London Heathrow.
Making up 15% of the airline’s cabin crew, BA currently employs around 2,500 mixed fleet flight attendants. According to labor union Unite, they are paid less than regular staff.
A planned strike over the busy Christmas period was suspended on December 22, however the new strike action could cause disruption to a number of flights. Keep an eye on the British Airways website for more information – the airline plans to update details regarding its contingency plan on January 6th.
