BA strikes back on

May 21: After seemingly suffering a setback to planned strike action, union Unite won its appeal in the UK High Court, overturning the injunction against British Airways’ cabin crew planned strikes due to a technical breach in the ballot.
Tony Woodley, Unite joint general secretary, said “We are delighted to have won today. Justice has been secured. Had it not been, the right to strike would now be hanging by a thread. BA must now accept that negotiation, not litigation, is the only way to secure the settlement we all want. However, further strikes will be unavoidable if the company does not immediately work with us to address the outstanding issues.”
Unite confirmed that cabin crew would go on strike for five days from Monday May 24, May 30 and June 5 should there be no settlement to the dispute.
In response BA said it was “very disappointed” and it is “confident that thousands of cabin crew will ignore Unite’s strike call and help us fly more than 70% of customers booked to fly in the period targeted.”
