BA cabin crew forced to open food bank as strike escalates

Mixed fleet cabin crew at British Airways are having to use money donated to their hardship fund to open a food bank, as their battle against poverty pay escalates to 8 days strike in 9 days. BA are offering a paltry 2% pay rise on their basic salary of £12,000 a year – and are so incompetent they can’t even agree amongst themselves whether they’re willing to negotiate or not. The crew’s determination to win a living wage can win them a famous victory, but they need your help to carry on. Please donate to their hardship fund: account name – Mixed Fleet Branch, account no 20376387, sort code 608301, ref MFU.
