British Airways on the verge of more cost-cutting

British Airways has been quiet for a few weeks now amid suggestions that the company is drawing up yet more plans to cut costs and effectively cut the unions out of any discussions. However, the company has today been warned by the unions that it should "step back from the brink" or risk a new wave of strikes which would have a massive impact on the long-term viability of the operation.

It is no secret that British Airways has struggled financially during the recession and despite introducing a number of cost-cutting exercises over the last few months there would appear to be more work to be done. However, there has been friction between the management and unions and many believe this is the reason why British Airways is looking to "go it alone" in the short to medium term. Whether this is a sensible option is open to debate because the unions can cause significant problems for the operation and could, if they wanted, bring it to its knees.

This is the latest in a long line of Union v Management disputes which have grabbed the headlines and will become more and more embarrassing for the UK government as we approach the next general election.
