British Airways strike dates announced

British Airways cabin crew have said they will go on strike for three days from 20 March and for four days from 27 March.

British Airways were “very dissapointed” with the decision, but must be fairly please that the strikes will not affect the easte rush. The Union added that there may be strike action again if a solution is not agreed before 14th April.

The strikes are over proposed cost-cutting measures which are intended to secure the airlines future.
