The decision to strike by Unite BA cabin crew members is totally irresponsible and counter productive. If the strike goes ahead over the Christmas period BA will take a huge financial hit which will mean it will make even more people redundant and reduce cabin crew numbers even further. BA made a loss of £292m in the first half of the year and it isn’t rocket science to work out that unless it makes changes such as reducing a further 1,200 staff which it announced recently it is unlikely to survive. Can Unite not comprehend that it is not acting in the interests of its members in encouraging strike action but against their long term interests?
