BA announce 16 day strike

20 June 2017

Cabin crew at British Airways will hold a 16-day strike next month.


The action is planned from Saturday, July 1, to Sunday, July 16. 


The Unite union said its members, who are in the mixed fleet crew, had voted to strike after BA refused to accept the union's final compromise position on the outstanding issue of the sanctioning of striking cabin crew. 


BA has suffered from 26 days of strikes since the beginning of the year, forcing it to cancel flights and charter aircraft from other airlines.


Last week, Unite suspended a planned four-day strike, hoping to resolve the dispute through fresh talks.
