British Airways faces three-day New Year strike

Despite returning from the UK courts victorious this week, British Airways today faces the possibility of a three-day strike by cabin crew in the New Year. The Unite union has vowed to reopen the ballot regarding industrial action as soon as possible after the previous vote was blocked by an injunction from the courts. Whether or not this three-day strike goes ahead there is no doubt that the reputation, and in many ways the finances, of British Airways have been dented.

While a three-day strike in the New Year or a possible rerun of the ballot for a 12 day strike program would have an impact on the company's cash flow and balance sheet, it is more the long-term damage to the company's reputation which could have far reaching consequences. There is no doubt that the unions and the British Airways management have been in disagreement for some time although we really do need to see an amicable agreement in the short term for the good of the company.

British Airways is a substantial employer in the UK and if the company was to struggle in the future there could be far reaching consequences for not only customers but also employees of the company.
