LONDON - Unite is balloting its union members employed as check-in staff by British Airways at Heathrow airport for industrial action in a dispute over pay.

British Airways employees are frustrated that the company has restored management pay to pre-pandemic levels but refused to reverse a 10 per cent pay cut which was imposed on them during the pandemic.

An industrial action ballot, which covers around 500 staff, will open on Tuesday 7 June and close on Monday 27 June. "Should workers vote in favour of industrial action, strikes are expected to occur in July when demands for flights are expected to be high," Unite said.

Unite general secretary Sharon Graham said: "British Airways used the cover of Covid to brutally cut members’ pay," United general secretary Sharon Graham said. "BA has now reversed the pay cuts imposed on management but refuses to do this for our members. This is disgraceful."
