BA cabin crew lift Christmas strike threat
Unite called off threatened Christmas strike action for the second time this week when it suspended a planned walkout by some British Airways cabin crew after new proposals from management. Len McCluskey, the union's general secretary, announced the lifting of the strike threat on Thursday evening after a day of talks at Acas, the arbitration service. The group, which accounts for about 15 per cent of the airline's cabin crew, had been threatening to strike over what the union called "Poverty pay". "As a result, we have suspended the strike action for Christmas Day and Boxing Day.". The RMT, which is locked in a battle with Southern rail over conductors' working practices, said it was calling the strike over staff shortages at stations following job cuts under Boris Johnson, London's former mayor.
