BA cabin crew extend strike again

Now the strike is extended until the end of summer
British Airways cabin crew working under ‘mixed fleet’ employment terms will add yet another two weeks to their current strike.
Already on strike until August 15, the additional days are from August 16 to August 30, taking it to the end of the peak summer travel season.
“Strike action will continue until the end of August unless British Airways hammers out a deal with Unite to resolve this dispute,” said Oliver Richardson, the Unite union’s national officer.
Mixed fleet crew constitute about 15% of BA’s total cabin crew. The airline says it will continue to fly all its passengers to their destinations, but the strike is “forcing British Airways to spend millions on ‘wet leasing’ aircraft to cover the striking cabin crew,” Unite says.
