British Airways - possible strike in March

A British Airways cabin crew strike at Christmas was cancelled by court injunction. The union has announced a revote starting 22 January (source The Guardian), which indicates a possible strike in March. Given the length of voting period required and minimum notice periods, the earliest possible strike date is about 26 or 27 February.

At this stage the revote seems likely to again pass, with a very high vote in favour of strike the first time around and union leaders agitating over working conditions during the extreme snow event currently being experienced in Europe.

In the meantime, BA travellers hope talks between management and unions reach a solution that doesn't disrupt travel plans.
