More strikes on the horizon?

Passengers may be affected by the threat of further strike action from British Airways as proposed changes to the pension scheme were rejected.

4,500 baggage handlers, ticketing staff plus other workers are represented by the GMB Union, which said that proposals to tackle BA’s £2 billion pension fund deficit was voted against by 2-1.

Industrial action cannot be ruled out but BA’s Chief Executive Willie Walsh will hold talks this week to try and resolve the row.
