British Airways pilots set to strike as Court of Appeal rejects injunction

  • British Airways pilots set to strike as Court of Appeal rejects injunction

The injunction meant to block a planned walkout by up to 93 percent of the union members, which totals around 4,000 pilots.

Legal action followed an announcement last week by the British Airline Pilots' Association (Balpa) that its members had backed industrial action by more than nine to one, on a turnout of 93%.

The strike is due to pay. British Airways is offering pilots an 11.5% pay rise over three years.

2009 saw tough times in the aviation industry following the global recession, with British Airways not immune to the downturn.

How much are BA pilots paid?

The union also wants, on top of a revised pay offer, a greater profit share scheme for its members, which other airlines in the United Kingdom offer, as well as a share buyback scheme.

The dispute is over pay, with BALPA and unions Unite and GMB submitting a joint pay claim in November.

"We are very sorry for the disruption Balpa's strike action will cause our customers".

In a statement, BA said: "We are disappointed that the pilots" union, Balpa, has chosen to threaten the holidays of thousands of our customers this summer with unprecedented strike action. Sadly three days of ACAS talks have not moved the company's position one iota.

BA-owner International Airlines Group had sought an injunction to prevent the strike in the High Court, but it was overturned.

The airline's barrister told the High Court last week that the proposed action is created to cause "the maximum in disruption" and could cost the airline up to £40m a day.

BA argued that Balpa's ballots did not comply with trade union law. However, the judge presiding over the appeal disagreed with the airline and threw the case out.

British Airways has lost an appeal aimed at halting planned strike action by its pilots.

Balpa general secretary Brian Strutton said: "The Court of Appeal has today rightly dismissed BA's attempt to injunct this industrial action on a technicality". Now the window for negotiation and compromise is closing fast.

The airline attempted to halt the strikes, which it claims are created to cause "the maximum in disruption" and could cost BA up to £40 million a day.

BA has previously said this could cost the airline up to £40m per day. BALPA has chose to hold off announcing any dates for strikes giving renegotiations another chance.

However, Balpa has not announced any strike dates today.

'We hope they now recognise the seriousness of the situation and will work positively with us to find a way forward.

"We are not announcing strike dates today".

Balpa is required by law to provide 14 days notice of any proposed strike action.

"Our proposed pay deal of 11.5% over three years is fair and, by contrast to Balpa, has been accepted by the members of the Unite and GMB trade unions, which represent almost 90% of all British Airways colleagues".
