BA wants to axe 400 cabin crew
Tuesday 04 December 2012
British Airways is looking to shed 400 senior cabin crew jobs, but stressed 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.
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 and 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 BA spokesman said.
The airline, which had a damaging, months-long cabin crew dispute which ended last year, has around 14,000 cabin crew in total.
