Pilot strike proves need for fresh negotiations to avert further action
The British Airline Pilots Association says the two-day strike action (Monday 9th September to Tuesday 10th September 2019) has been a powerful demonstration of the strength of feeling of BA pilots.
BALPA urges the airline back to the negotiating table with some meaningful proposals to try to avert the next scheduled strike on 27th September.
As the strike action draws to a close (due to end at 23.59 this evening, Tuesday 10th September), BA pilots have been virtually 100% solid in supporting the strike.
BALPA calls on BA to return to negotiations with something positive to resolve this dispute and try to prevent the next strike action on 27 September.
Should British Airways refuse meaningful negotiations, further strike dates will be considered by the BALPA national executive team.
BALPA General Secretary, Brian Strutton, said:
“Surely any reasonable employer would listen to such a clear message, stop threatening and bullying, and start working towards finding a solution”
