BA have decided to go for broke, and use the ongoing strike to push through changes in pay and conditions.
BA is planning to hire 1,250 new cabin crew members this year, with a ten year plan for the new crew to make up 40% of the total crew.
Unite claim that the new intake will be paid "minimum wage" salaries.
Needless to say daggers are now drawn between the union and BA, the long suffering passengers of BA must now work on the assumption that the strike action will continue throughout this summer until either the union gives up or BA goes under.
