British Airways’ cabin crew announce 48-hour strike for Jan. 10
Tuesday, 3 January 2017 LONDON British Airways (ICAG.L) cabin crew plan to hold a 48-hour strike starting on Jan. 10, after suspending previous plans to walk out over Christmas, trade union Unite said on Tuesday.Crew who serve as part of British Airways' 'mixed fleet' - and have poorer terms and conditions than some longer-serving staff - rejected a pay offer from BA shortly before Christmas. "Unite remains hopeful that a negotiated settlement which meets our members' aspirations can be achieved and would urge British Airways to engage constructively in meaningful talks to address poverty pay," the trade union said.
