British Airways agrees pay deal to end strikes
British Airways has agreed a new pay deal with its pilots' union, heading off the risk of Christmas strikes as the airline looks to end one of the most damaging industrial disputes in its history. As part of the agreement, BA agreed to insert an inflation protection clause to its previous pay offer of an 11.5 per cent rise over three years. A ballot of BA's pilots will now take place in the coming days to vote on the new deal. If pilots vote in favour of the proposal, it will put an end to a costly and turbulent few months for BA that saw it hit by the first pilots' strike in the airline's history. Under the previous deal, BA had offered pilots a pay increase of 11.5 per cent over three years - an offer that both the Unite and GMB trade unions, which represent nearly 90 per cent of all BA workers, accepted in the summer.
