British Airways says first 24 hrs of strike called off24 January 2007
British Airways said that it has been advised by the Transport and General Workers’ Union (TGWU) that the union has called off the first 24 hours of a planned 72 hours stoppage by cabin crew, due to begin on Jan 29.
The airline intends to announce a flying programme tomorrow for Jan 30 and Jan 31. Strikes are still scheduled to take place on those dates, followed by 72-hour walkouts on Feb 5 and Feb 12.
In the wake of the decision, British Airways said in a separate statement that the TGWU ‘should act immediately‘ to call off its planned strikes completely.
