In a completely unexpected move(!) British Airways staff in the Unite union have voted to strike with 81% of staff polled voting in favour of industrial action.
However British Airlines Stewards and Stewardesses Association (BASSA) say this may not end in a strike.
“We don’t want to strike,” said spokesperson Ken Ablard. “All we want is for BA to negotiate and not impose”.
Legally 1 weeks notice must be served before industrial action. This puts the strike to the 1st March, however Unite has promised not to strike over the Easter period in a play to the travelling public.
More updates will follow.
