LONDON Dec 14 Thousands of cabin crew working
for British Airways have voted overwhelmingly in favour of
strike action in a pay dispute, the Unite union said on
More than 2,500 Unite members who crew long- and short-haul
routes to dozens of destinations could walk out after Dec. 21,
it said in a statement.
Those taking part in the ballot were members of IAG-owned
BA's "Mixed Fleet," Unite said, which all BA's new
cabin crew employees since 2010 have joined.
"Mixed fleet crew earn just over the minimum wage and below
the national average," said Unite regional officer Matt Smith.
No BA comment was immediately available.
