British Airways: A breakdown in trust?
In late April, its parent company International Airlines Group announced plans to implement a major restructuring programme at BA, which could lead to up to 12,000 redundancies. Balpa has been engaging with the company, but now says the negotiations are "Hanging by a thread". For cabin crew, there is not only the threat of redundancy, but also the prospect of big pay cuts for long-serving staff - in some cases of more than 50%. Many of those affected believe the company is using the current crisis to force through changes it has wanted to make for years. The union is waging a high-profile campaign against what it calls the company's "Betrayal" of its staff. A great deal of anger also seems to be aimed at Willie Walsh, the chief executive of parent company IAG, widely seen as the architect of the planned cuts.
