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.

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.

These guys on the ramp are my colleagues, but I don't agree with what they are doing. We the front line check-in staff are the ones who will pay for this and I wish my colleagues at LHR who are out front the very best tonight.

But this is 2005. Not 1975.
Why should they screw their employer for something that has nothing to do with their employer

They did have a bunch of buses at the top of T4, it was chocker, i'm pretty sure they were ferrying pax...
- 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.....
