British Airways crew on strike after a row for pay raise
BBC – 15 December 2016
The crews of British Airways have voted to conduct strikes due to the row for pay raise, according to the Unite union which represent them.
2000 of the airline’s cabin crews voted overwhelmingly for the conduction of strike in the Heathrow airport.
2% pay rise given for the cabin crews turned dissatisfactory which led to such situation which also created uncertainty for the passengers.
79% of the cabin crew took part in the balloting who also urged that the airlines should return back for negotiations as the tensions for the pay and other conditions have been going on.
The staffs who had joined the airlines from 2010 on “Mixed fleet” contracts numbering to 4000, were the victim and among them, 2500 are the Unite members.
Remunerations were publicized between £21,000 and £25,000 but, in truth, start at just above £12,000 plus £3 an hour flying wage, according to the Unite.
