British Airways cabin crew strikes

British Airways cabin crews are now in their third day of striking, demanding better working conditions and a pay rise, report the ABC and Libcom.org.

Whilst ninety seven per cent of cabin crew showed up for their shifts on Saturday, there has still been major disruptions to the airline, particularly in Heathrow Airport. Seven cabin crew members who are at the centre of the srikes have been warned that if the striking continues, they will be sacked. It is estimated that British Airways will lose 100 million pounds through the strikes.

British Airways staff are being backed by their union, Unite. If British Airways management and Unite have not reached an agreement by next weekend, another four day strike will be held.

    How does this strike effect people in Brisbane or Aussie travellers?
