British Airways cabin crew to stage two-week strike
British Airways cabin crew are to stage a two-week strike from 1 July, the Unite union has said, in a long-running dispute over pay and benefits. Unite said BA had refused to accept its final offer on the issue of the "Sanctioning" of striking cabin crew. The union claims that British Airways has formed a "Blacklist to impose sanctions on striking cabin crew", which has led to bonus payments being cut and the removal of staff travel concessions. The union has now said its members among BA's mixed fleet crew will go on strike from 00:01 on Saturday 1 July to 23:59 on Sunday 16 July. "A resolution to this long-running dispute was within the grasp of British Airways, but instead of grabbing that opportunity, bosses rebuffed it. It now means British Airways faces an entirely avoidable two-week strike and prolonged legal action on behalf of over 1,400 mixed cabin crew."
