United Kingdom -Unionising the British Airways mixed fleet -November 15, 2012

About half of the 1800 mixed fleet crew at British Airways joined Unite union in recent months. The mixed fleet staffs were hired after November 2010, under worse working conditions and pay than employees hired before that date. The lower entry salaries caused a fierce industrial conflict in 2010. The significantly younger mixed fleet crew is now seeking better working conditions through collective bargaining. BA has agreed on union recognition and said it is open to talks.
