BA aims to cut 400 cabin crew jobs
Tuesday 04 December 2012
British Airways is looking to shed 400 senior cabin crew jobs. But the airline stressed that there would be no compulsory redundancies.
A BA spokesman said the airline had entered into a 90-day consultation with the Unite union about the possibility of making voluntary redundancy available to 400 cabin crew staff.
Those being offered the redundancy package would be senior cabin crew employees, such as pursers and cabin service directors who work exclusively on long-haul and exclusively on short-haul services.
The package will not be available to those whose work is categorised as "mixed" fleet, who operate on both long-haul and short-haul flights.
"This is a purely voluntary scheme. We have no plans to make any compulsory redundancies," the spokesman said.
BA, which had a damaging months-long cabin crew dispute that ended last year, has around 14,000 cabin crew in total.
