BALPA response to BA announcement of possible job cuts

Release date: 28/04/2020

BALPA General Secretary, Brian Strutton said: 

“BA pilots and all staff are devastated by the announcement of up to 12,000 possible job losses in British Airways. 

“This has come as a bolt out of the blue from an airline that said it was wealthy enough to weather the COVID storm and declined any Government support. 

“BALPA does not accept that a case has been made for these job losses and we will be fighting to save every single one.”
