BREAKING: British Airways pilots ‘vote to strike’ over pay

Unions are understood to have rejected the airline’s latest pay offer.

It has led them to call for a strike ballot, according to Bloomberg.

Brian Strutton, general secretary of the British Airline Pilots Association union (Balpa), said: “We are urgently considering next steps and will make a further statement later this week.”

After Daily Star Online approached the company for comment, British Airways said in a statement: “We believe our pay and benefits for pilots are among the best in the industry.

“Our latest pay proposal of 11.5% over three years is fair and generous, and we continue open discussions with all our trade unions.”

It is not yet clear when the proposed strike would go ahead.
