“British Airways are using the coronavirus pandemic as an ‘opportunity’ to achieve a long-held ambition to ruthlessly and permanently cut pay and conditions for staff – wage cuts of up to 70% and thousands threatened with the sack.
“Respected aviation blog One Mile at a Time described this as both “cruel” and “unsurprising”. Whilst many hard-working staff have been using their time in lockdown as an opportunity for volunteering in hospitals, taking part in charity fund-raising, looking after vulnerable friends or relatives – the small acts of kindness that will get us through this crisis, the Board of British Airways has used it as an opportunity to behave in a callous and calculated way. This is an act of betrayal by Britain’s flag-carrying airline – an act that cannot go unchallenged.
“Add your name to the hundreds of thousands demanding BA stops these punishing and permanent attacks on its own workforce, and support our actions to make them listen.
