BA pilots to strike in September


British Airways pilots will strike on September 9, 10 and 27, citing the failure of negotiations regarding pay.

The British Airline Pilots Association says talks with the airline over pay packages have been unsuccessful, and that the strike, the first in the airline’s 100-year history, will be a ‘last resort’.

The association has estimated that the three-day strike will cost the airline around £120m (R2bn) and says it may add more strike dates until the matter is resolved.
