BA workers planning more strikes?
The cabin-crew for British Airways, which is represented by Unite union, will vote next week on whether or not they should have more strikes over pay, staffing levels and travel perks.
The ongoing battle has been going on now for 16 long months, with workers walking 22 days since March 20, which has cost the airline 154 million pounds (about $228 million USD).
The Unite union will ask the 12,000 flight attendants that they represent whether or not more strikes is the answer. British Airways Chief Executive Officer Willie Walsh has stated over and over again that the airline will operate all long-haul flights even if the workers walk.
Unite will open balloting between June 29 and July 27 on whether or not more strikes should take place.
