British Airways appears to have avoided a summer cabin crew strike after three out four voted in favour of accepting the carrier’s deal on pay and conditions.
The deal includes a two-year 4.6% pay deal, an overhaul of the pay rates, overhaul of the sickness absence policy and a maximum annual flying time of 900 hours a year.
It was thrashed out between BA and trade union officials from the Transport and General Workers’
76% of cabin crew voted in favour of the agreement.
“This is a good result for our members, BA and the travelling public,” T&G deputy general secretary Jack Dromey. “A new era for respect for cabin crew staff has been established.”
