Interestingly enough strikers in the 70’s were responsible for bringing down a Socialist government following the notorious “winter of discontent”. Prolonged strike action killed the British car industry and accelerated the demise of the coal industry. Trust me, BA will go the same way. If the autocratic management style mentioned by a previous poster is to blame for the unrest then why doesn’t BA suffer from crippling levels of staff turnover ?
This dispute is about power not principle
