Unite condemns BA’s attack on cabin crew travel

Unite has condemned the move by British Airways to withdraw travel benefits from striking cabin crew – many of whom rely on the travel assistance to get to work following BA’s decision to close its regional bases and require the vast majority of cabin crew to operate out of Heathrow, no matter where they may live.

Unite said: “This is the clearest possible example of BA’s bullying and contemptuous approach to its employees. Cabin crew showed last weekend that they will not be intimidated. Unite will challenge this vindictive move in whatever way seems appropriate.”
