BA rules out Easter travel disruption
British Airways (BA) cabin crew have ruled out industrial strike action for the Easter holidays.
The announcement will be a relief for the 2.5 million people that fly abroad during the Easter period.
Earlier this week, the Unite union said BA cabin crew were to begin a second strike ballot next week raising renewed fears for travellers.
This announcement came after a strike planned for Christmas was declared illegal in a High Court ruling.
However, at the time of the ruling, Unite vowed to hold a fresh ballot if the dispute with BA over pay, jobs and working conditions was not resolved.
However, Unite said it will not call strikes over the Easter period if its members support industrial action in next week’s ballot.
The ballot result will be known on February 22.
