British Airways pilots announce September dates

Postby Greg on Fri Aug 23, 2019 12:10 pm

British Airways pilots are to strike on 9, 10 and 27 September in a dispute over pay, the British Airline Pilots Association (Balpa) has said.

The three-day strike - the first by BA pilots - could cause severe disruption, as Balpa represents about 90% of the airline's pilots.

The union said strikes were a "last resort" born out of "enormous frustration" with airline management.

BA called it "unjustifiable" and said Balpa was "destroying" travel plans.

The union said BA rejected a "number of packages" that were proposed to resolve the pay dispute, and that there remains a gap of around £5m between the two sides' positions.

The industrial action comes after 93% of Balpa's members voted in favour of striking.
