A whole bunch of British Airways (BA) employees at Heathrow airport have voted in favour of strike motion later this summer in an ongoing dispute over pay. Unions have said the motion was because of a ten percent pay cut imposed through the peak of the pandemic not being reinstated.
Union members on the British flag carrier, most of whom are check-in staff, are yet to substantiate when the strikes will happen, but some 700 employees are expected to walk out.
BA has said it was “extremely dissatisfied” with the results of the ballot, with Unite and GMB union members each overwhelmingly backing strike motion.
This summer could possibly be havoc for holidaymakers and employees travelling abroad because of the continued industrial motion not only going down within the UK but in addition across Europe.

Gatwick will probably be thrown into chaos as flight departures will probably be capped through the height of the summer season.
Day by day flights from the busy London airport will probably be capped from 850 to 825 throughout the two-month period, which is anticipated to guide to 10,000 cancellations.
easyJet is anticipated to be probably the most affected airline, and a spokesperson said: “In response to those caps and so as to construct additional resilience, easyJet is proactively consolidating various flights across affected airports.”
