British Airways cabin crew to stage four-day strike
An offer aimed at resolving the dispute was narrowly rejected last week.
British Airways cabin crew are to stage fresh strikes in a long-running dispute over pay.
Members of Unite will walk out from June 16 for four days after a failure to break the deadlocked row.
The cabin crew have taken several days of industrial action in a campaign over the pay of staff in the so-called mixed fleet, who joined the airline in recent years.
An offer aimed at resolving the dispute was narrowly rejected last week. The announcement adds to the problems currently facing BA following a computer failure last weekend which grounded flights.
A BA spokeswoman said: “As on the previous dates when Unite called strikes of mixed fleet cabin crew, we will fly all our customers to their destinations.
“Strike action is completely unnecessary. We had reached a deal on pay, which Unite’s national officers agreed was acceptable. We urge Unite to put the pay proposals to a vote of their members.”
