GB Airways Question RE: Possible Strike Dates

Sun Mar 04, 2007 1:26 am

I am traveling with GB airways over easter. I am a little worried about the strike that may happen over the the easter period.

Does anybody know any news?!

Thx in advance

GB Airways Question RE: Possible Strike Dates

No news but as far as I understand it GB crews currently park and report at the Beehive before going to their aircraft to operate flights and BA want them to report to Jubilee House instead but as the car park next to Jubilee isn't big enough, the GB crews will have to park at 'X' or 'Z overflow' which are both a pain in the ..... and subsequently the crew aren't happy.

I'd be interested to know myself what the chances of a strike are, I'd be amazed if they actually did strike over this issue, although at BA (and it's franchise partners) nothing would surprise me.

It does seem a stupid thing to go onstrike about, I can understand pay and pentions etc but car parking seems a little desperate...
