BA cabin crew vote again on strike

British Airways cabin crew will be voting between 21 December and 21 January, 2011 on whether to take industrial action in protest against recent staff cuts.

If the ballot result is in favour of industrial action, the earliest the crew could go on strike would be 28 January 2011.

The airline's cabin crew, alongside the union Unite, are fighting imposed changes which have reduced crew numbers by between one and three on all flights and impacted on in-flight service delivery.

Unite represents more than 12,000 of the airline's 13,500 cabin crew. The first proposed strike for December 2009 was found to be unlawful by the Royal Court of Justice.
