just seen this on the news and havnt seen it posted .......unlucky for people with flights booked over xmas

British Airways cabin crew have voted overwhelmingly in favour of strike action in a dispute over job cuts and changes to staff contracts.

The strikes are set to begin on 22 December and run until 2 January.

Cabin crew voted by nine to one in favour of the strike action, with an 80% turnout.

BA's chief executive Willie Walsh said the decision was "cynical" and betrayed "a lack of concern for our customers, our business and other employees".

Len McCluskey, assistant general secretary of the Unite union, said: "It goes without saying that we have taken this decision to disrupt passengers and customers over the Christmas period with a heavy heart."

He stressed that the union was keen to continue negotiations.

"We will wait, ready to meet, anytime, anywhere, 24 hours a day, to try to see if we can resolve the dispute."

Christmas

I hope the BA workers get screwed over if they strike.

Striking over the xmas period is a pretty despicable tactic.

Yep. I think they are in cahoots with the staff at RM... Both apparently want to be made redundant!

I do get fed up with these public service people screwing over the public for their own ends .... the union spokesman said "It was with a heavy heart we took this decision" :w00t:
Yeah right, they knew if would create the most havoc and they do not care who suffers for it..... :x

My take on this ,if the staff are on average £30000 and they are gonna have there pay cut to £20000 as i read somewhere.Then they have mortgages,loans etc to £30000 wage.They have nothing to lose from striking
i.e.strike try and keep what we got
dont strike lose job or 1/3 of wages which means losing there homes,cars etc
dont think many people realise this when slagging them off ,ok a jobs a job but its not worth having if you cant pay your bills
