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.
GMB are protesting about the poverty wages paid to their staff by Medirest, an outsourcing contractor at Watford General Hospital. The staff get only 10 pence more than the legal minimum wage, despite the parent company making over £1.4 billion operating profit in 2016 and are paid this same low rate for nights, weekends and even Christmas day
BA cabin crew have voted to strike against poverty pay. While British Airways CEO Willie Walsh earns £8.8 MILLION a year and BA have record profits of £1.4 BILLION, mixed fleet crew (who work both long and short haul flights) are expected to live on just £1,000 a month. 79.5% of the crew voted yes to strike action.
