Union sets new strike vote against British Airways

Union sets new strike vote against British Airways

A union representing British Airways cabin crew said Monday it will hold a strike vote in a dispute over pay, job security and working conditions.
The Unite union said it would continue to negotiate with the airline while the vote by 13,000 cabin crew goes ahead starting next week.
Cabin crew represented by the Unite union had voted overwhelmingly in favor of striking in December, but the airline won a court order to prevent a walkout.
"In notifying the company of this, I have reiterated that we want talks to continue, and that the union is prepared to meet any place, any time, to try and reach an agreement which addresses the real concerns of BA's skilled, loyal and professional employees while giving the company the savings it needs to stay airborne," said Len McCluskey, assistant general secretary of Unite.
