“You are the heroes and heroines of our movement”, said Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell as he visited the British Airways mixed fleet cabin crew picket lines, saluting their bravery as they started a 3 day strike against poverty pay of just £12,000 basic a year. UNITE general secretary Len McCluskey also joined the picket lines to promise all the resources from the union they needed to win the dispute, as support starts to flood in from trade unionists and customers alike for the increasingly determined cabin crew. Now they’ve announced 6 days of strike action on February 5 – 7 and 9 – 11; you can show your support by joining them on the picket lines at Hatton Cross tube from 8am, and donating to the hardship fund (Account name: Mixed Fleet Branch, acct no: 20376387, sort code 089301, reference: MFU)
