British Airways strike enters 3rd day

Send a link to a friend

[March 22, 2010]  LONDON (AP) -- British Airways and the union representing its cabin crew are no closer to resolving a dispute over pay and conditions as a strike enters its third -- and busiest -- day.

Monday's operations at the airline are expected to be under more strain as there are far more flights packed in to normal scheduling.

The Unite union and BA both claim victory over the walkout that has caused the airline to cancel over half its 1,950 flights normally scheduled over the period. Unite disputes BA's claim that a substantial number of workers crossed the picket line.

The union is due to strike again from Saturday for four days if the dispute is not resolved. BA has warned knock-on effects from this walkout will carry on throughout this week.
