Quoting TUGMASTER (Reply 30):
All BA staff are doing is following the correct procedure with regard to the H&S issues, and at the same time showing their strong SOLIDARITY with the sacked GG workers.

What is the Health & Safety risk to the baggage handlers?

Shoiwng solidarity is one thing, walking off the job is another. BA should get some balls and sack the illegal stikers. Ba never do anything with these illegal strikers and until they set an example, it will keep happening. (every August isn't it?)

Per the BA website....

Heathrow Disruption 11 August 2005

Summary
British Airways has cancelled its flights from Heathrow Airport for the remainder of the day (Thursday, August 11). Flights currently en-route to Heathrow will be diverted. The decision is as a result of unofficial industrial action at Heathrow by staff from catering company Gate Gourmet and some British Airways ground staff. We are working hard to resolve the situation and restart our flights as soon as possible.

We are currently reviewing our flying programme for tomorrow (Friday, August 12). However, customers who are booked to travel tomorrow should check the latest situation on ba.com before coming to the airport.

We will rebook customers due to travel on cancelled flights today. This is likely to be after the weekend. Alternatively we will offer a refund. We are bringing in additional staff to help customers at the airport. We will also try to provide hotel for those customers who require overnight accommodation this evening.

Customers in the UK should contact the airline on its freephone telephone number 0800 727 800. Customers in the USA should call 1-800 airways. Customers in the rest of the world should contact their local British Airways office. Please click here

We apologise sincerely to all our customers for the inconvenience this will cause. We understand that this is a difficult time. We are doing everything we can to help our customers as quickly as possible.
Where am I going, and why am I in this handbasket?

Let me see if I get this straight. I put this together from different news stories and hope it is right.

Gate Gourmet loses its Virgin Atlantic contract and says it will fire workers. The workers strike and get fired, and BA ground crew strike in protest, messing up flights?

Let me know if I have any of this wrong.

We don't have the full picture yet, but by the tone of this thread, I'd ask if it's legal for Gate Gourmet to sack hundreds of permanent staff, escort them off the premises and replace them with lower-paid seasonal workers?

Is that really OK by you?

You get called in a room, doors are locked, you're told you're dismissed, you're escorted from the premises and your job goes to someone else.

That's "economic reality" is it? "That's life", "We've got to cut costs" etc etc.
And you expect people to accept that on their knees?

That's what GG management seem to have done and they're now seeing the consequences. Secondary action (it was known as "solidarity" in the 70s) doesn't surprise me.

Strikes are a terrible thing to happen, but some on here should question the clowns at the top first rather than seeking to blame the staff from the off.

My idea of fining 2 days pay for each day an employee is involved with a job action is to not sack anybody and the subsequent problems it can lead to including retraining new workers, and how it would affect the airline, remaining workers, and the quality of customer service. This has been done with various union workers including teachers and regional railway workers per their agreements in the USA.
There must be huge messes at airports around the world where BA flies to/from...all those pax cursing out the BA staff, scrambling for other flights, business and tourist travel plans possibly ruined. While I understand their solidarity with their fellow union brothers and sisters, I wish some of these striking employees had to face it from the other side for a change.

Jeez...

BA's heavies are now pretty much scattered everywhere BUT london ... getting that schedule put back together is going to be a nightmare ...

I wonder if they'll simply fly the return legs from wherever the planes put down, in order to keep somewhat of a schedule going ...

Even if people don't make it out of the UK, there are surely lots of people still booked on the originating flights in the following days ...

Just returned from LHR luckily on LH on a full AB6 with "FRA" catering in Biz. Rebooked passengers on that flight did not get meals at all.

I did see one or two BA aircraft moving, else it was the most expeditious take-off I had in LHR in all these years since 1967, no queues.

Gate Gourmet staff have been treated appalingly and I fully support their decision to walk out. No doubt GG staff are grateful for the support from the baggage handlers but as a traveller I would be less supportive hence it is the baggage handlers who have grounded the airline. Secondary action is a bad practice from the 70s. Lets give the GG staff the support they deserve though.

Totally agree with you on that one. I was just thankful that I was on an Early this morning and left just as this all kicked in, came home went to sleep woke up watched the news and Voila, wtf? I am in tomorrow however which I am not lookin forward to one bit!

A lot of my mates (Who are Customer Service Agents) are still there at this time, hope they're all doin ok!!

Anyone who has walked out and increased this problem to the stage its reached now have no respect for the airline they work for!

I went by LHR this afternoon, and all i can say was CHRIST!
I did a bit of spotting, and in 2 hours, there was not one, thats right NOT ONE BA departure!
We went via terminal 4 to catch the heathrow express, and there must have been 5000 passengers, crying, shouting, swearing, as well as the media.
It was unbelievable!

- BTW, is this directly related to the Gate Gourmet strike? Cos if it is, then saying sack the lot and start again might not be too accurate, as their USA base is going under, and the reason for the strikes is due to a proposed pay cut, and seasonal employment, to SAVE the company from going under.....

I have just been sent home from work at the Compass Centre, which is where all the BA Tech and Cabin Crew check-in for their flights. We then clear security at 'Compass' and board busses (each designated to a particular flight number), which are security sealed, and then taken directly airside to the aircraft.

We were aware at check in that there would be no food on board (as was the case yesterday).

After checking in for my flight at 14:00 we proceeded down to security, cleared security and were waiting for our bus. More and more crews were coming through security and yet only a trickle of buses were coming through. Then the trickle turned to none. After waiting for another thirty or so minutes we were told about the 'issues' with the bus drivers. They had joined baggage handlers, caterers and tug drivers in un-official strike action. So in short, there were no physical way to get the crews to the aircraft.

I am a union member myself (BASSA). I do think is it terrible the way Gate Grourmet staff have been treated. But one of the benefits of living in the UK and having union membership is that there are effective LEGAL ways to resolve issues and take employers to task if they have not been fair. However I think that this action is an absolute disgrace. A unions task is to represent its members views. A ballot is taken and notice is given and action is taken.

What BA ground staff have to do with third party contractors I have no idea. This action has been taken to inflict maximum disruption to our passengers. I am really sad what their immature actions will do to the great reputation BA has that many of us work hard to keep. Tomorrow I will have to face a lot of very angry delayed passengers on board for 10 hours.....and probably on an aircraft with no food. cheers guys...

Message from Rod Eddington, BA chairman on BA staff intranet:

"It is with deep sadness that I am once again writing to you on the back of industrial action by British Airways staff at London Heathrow airport.
Earlier today, members of the TGWU trade union decided to take industrial action, we believe in support of Gate Gourmet workers currently in dispute with their management.
As a result, and in order to allow this situation to be resolved with the least amount of disruption possible, we have decided to cancel the remainder of our flying programme into and out of London Heathrow for the rest of today.
The cancellation of our schedule for today is not a decision I have taken lightly. However, I hope it will give us the breathing space we need to find a sensible but speedy resolution to the complex issues at the heart of this dispute.
In the meantime, I urge the trade unions to put our customers first and call upon their members within British Airways to return to work immediately."

You say the USA base of BA is going under. I could not agree with you more. I was getting ready to book a flight for 3 weeks from now on BA for Club World.
Thats when I first read what was going onSince this morning,. I have booked and paid for UA.

Back to the loss of the USA base for BA. In my honest and frank opinion, BA can blame themselves for that. Over and over again, they have refused to open LHR to more US airlines so they could get USA Anti Trust Immunity for BA/AA and thus take advantage of all the benefits of Oneworld.

Now LHR,BA and the UKl is faced, in the middle of the summer season, thousands and thousands of stranded passengers waiting to fly to LHR or waiting to fly home from LHR.

The reality is that if the US carriers had more access to LHR, it might be a bit easier to clear some of the backlog of passengers and get them on their way.

The US base will continue to erode and collapse unless and until they can fully tap into the USA market with Anti trust.

Oh sorry Drinkstrolley, i didn't realise who you were reffering to!
Incidently there is a photo attached which displays some of the BA ramp at heathrow today, these ones powered up, then no tugs arrived, and the passengers are probably, well at least they were 3 hours later still stuck there! On the exit to 27L, there were approx 20 aircraft sitting there, going nowhere.

Per someone at AA, AA's flights to and from LHR tonight are all going out pretty full with some accommodations of stranded BA passengers. However, did BA passengers really have time to get over to other airlines' flights for reaccomodation? I'd imagine that many passengers were probably waiting around the terminal for their flights which they thought were only "delayed," and then found out that they were "cancelled" when it was already too late.

This is so unfortunate for BA -- an airline I admire very much. BA's striking employees should be ashamed for doing this to their own airline, when the labor dispute that they are apparently sympathizing with had absolutely nothing to do with BA.

I think that UA would like to keep a closed shop at LHR.However, with openskies they could fly Denver-LHR, something I sure they would like to do. However, AA would probably agree to openskies so that they can have ATI with BA, something that has eluded them for a long time.

Also, with openskies AA could fly DFW-LHR something wihich they now can not do. So for AA it would be a mixed bag of goodies.
