ARE THE UNIONS TRYING TO SHUT DOWN BA?
What are the Unions and in particular the Labour funding UNITE trying to do to British Airways. It seems to me now that the power has been taken away from their COMMIE COMRADES IN DOWNING STREET by the Election, they feel unfettered to bring the company to it's knees.
BA has lost £165million in the last two months or so through Strikes and the effect of the ash cloud. USHITE are planning another four weeks of strikes which will cost the company another £138million. These losses are unsustainable for any company, no matter how large.
Being part of the Cabin Crew on a plane is a cushy number. It is riddled with so called 'Spanish Practices'. BA cabin crew are already the best paid in the industry. Their perks are legendary. I have friends whose daughter works as Cabin Crew with BA and they jet all over the world for fuck all, as do the rest of her, ever extending, family.
It must be tempting for CEO, Willie Walsh to shut the whole fucking thing down and tell them to go and work for a living. See how they would like to be a nurse, working a hard 12 hour shift with no perks other than a subsidised canteen. Although I see today that Arts and Entertainment is the fastest growing industry in the UK and half of wankers would end up as quiz show contestants.
Sir Richard Branson must be laughing like fuck!
