No again, can they just not get to grips. Because of the current economic climate everyone is having to experience pay freezes, in fact they should be glad that they still have jobs. Cant beleive because of some selfish employees so many people will have their holiday ruined.

BAA employees have an a package of benefits that most US employees would drool over and yet they have the affront to vote for a strike! They should get real !

If they do not like their terms and conditions - find another job!

Coincidence?
My thoughts exactly - I do find it rather amusing that at the moment the only union which seems to think that, in the middle of a recession, a 1% pay rise is unreasonable.

The BA thing pi55ed me off even more - BA as a company is currently haemoraging money left right and centre, the employees of BA might not have a job in a few years unless the company can turn itself around, striking will not help that situation 1 iota!
