British Airways faces another round strikes after thousands of cabin crew rejected a peace deal and voted for industrial action yesterday.
The BA management and Unite union have been involved in a long-running dispute over pay and working conditions.
According to the Unite union, 81 per cent of cabin crew voted against airline’s latest deal, with a 71 per cent turnout.
BA said that its latest proposed deal was very fair and the dispute was hurting its chances to recover from two consecutive record losses.
Speaking on the issue, BA said, "We urge Unite to put an end to this unnecessary dispute and focus on the best interests of its members."
Earlier in March, strikes by cabin crew members had cost the airline around 45 million pounds. Last months, the airline suffered a loss of further 180 million pounds following the eruption of Icelandic volcano which grounded hundreds of flights across Europe.
Fresh wave of strikes at BA will definitely cause chaos for thousands of passengers.
