In the last five years BA have cut staff, freezed wages but still managed to give the big boss £5m for his efforts of the merging of BA with a Spanish airline AFAIK

And if that's fact...I'm with the BA staff

No but they are striking for workers rights.

What happens if you sack the majority of your workforce?
Do you not realise how much it costs to employ and train new staff? The cost would massively outweigh paying your current workforce more. Secondly, how would the company run whilst employing and training a new work force?

Not really thought this one out have you?

I got fed up employing people so went back to working on my own and it is one of the best decisions I ever made. Now work less hours and earn more money than I ever did employing people.

The BA staff knew what their working conditions would be when they signed the contracts so if they do not like it now then leave. Striking just embarrasses one of our flag ship companies and makes them look bad around the world. Training staff may cost money but how many millions have these strikes cost BA?

I love the "they knew what they were signing up for" aspersions, as though the cost of living doesn't rise. Moron.

And the cost of running a global business does not rise? Love you. <3

Same report says they are going to make £3.2 BN profit next year but not if they waste money by giving pay rises to the trolley dollies.

Christ! £3.2bn on "trolley dollies!?" I'm in the wrong profession!!

Trying to make this a bit more constructive.

Is it not written into their contracts how the pay rise structure works or do they just hope the BA bosses will give them a rise?

Anyone actually know one of the striking BA staff who can provide some facts?

I don't think any employment contract covers pay rises
The contracts will discuss pay scales, duties, terms of employment, disciplinary procedures etc but never seen one, or heard of one, that includes cost of living pay rises.

And you've been your own boss but also used to employ people?
What if you paid yourself the same wage year on year whilst the cost of living increased year on year (whilst your business profit/turnover increased) - is that fair on you?
And what if your main supplier increased prices to improve their profit exponentially to pay their fat cat bosses more bonus whilst you had to endure these increases yet couldn't increase your sales price - is that fair on you?

Yes they earn good money to put up with potentially death, risk of terrorist, scummy/abusive customers but are they not allowed to have their pay increased in line with inflation? whilst it's OK for their fat cat bosses to get bonuses and claim expenses and all?
