Cabin crew at Thomas Cook are to be asked if they want to hold an industrial action ballot over redundancy terms. Unite, which represents around 1,300 cabin crew, said the movefollowed the breakdown of talks over terms for peoplelosing their jobs.
The cabin crews fly from Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, the East Midlands, Gatwick, Glasgow, Manchester, Newcastle and Stansted.
Unite said it had asked the company to put a "realistic" voluntary severance package on the table, including a lump sum payment of £5,000. The union will hold a consultative ballot in the next week before deciding whether to have a full industrial action ballot.
