United Kingdom - BA workers deserve better - March 31, 2017

A group of academics wrote to the Guardian seven years ago, protesting at British Airways’ imposition of lesser pay and conditions for its cabin crew, and the apparent desire of its management to break their union. In a new open letter, they criticise the management that, in an amplified reprise of the events, is refusing to negotiate with Unite, having threatened to remove bonuses for 2016 and 2017 and banned staff travel concessions, while the crew have been compelled to take strike action, amounting to as many as 26 days.
