Walkouts in March forced BA to cancel hudreds of flights

 

 The cabin crew of British Airways rejected an offer from the airline. Had they accepted the offer, the bitter dispute over pay and work conditions would have been resolved.

 

The outcome of a ballot consisting of about 13,000 workers was announced by the Unite union Friday and raises the possibility of new strikes at the carrier.

 

Walkouts in March forced British Airways to cancel hundreds of flights, which affected thousands of passengers and cost the airline tens of millions of dollars.

 

Workers were advised by Unite to reject the new offer based on the fact that British Airways had failed to reinstate perks taken away from staff that joined in strike.

 

Unite is also displeased with BA for taking disciplinary action against more than 50 union members.
