British Airways pilots to strike on Sept 9, 10, 27

Pilots at British Airways will go on strike for three days in September after talks failed to settle a long-running pay dispute, the union has announced.

The pilots will take industrial action on 9, 10 and 27 September in a move that BA said was likely to disrupt the plans of “tens of thousands” of passengers.

The British Airline Pilots’ Association (Balpa) said the airline had rejected its proposals to resolve the standoff and it had “no choice but to call this action”. The airline said it had offered a three-year deal of 11.5% that had been accepted by other BA employees, and it would “continue to pursue every avenue to find a solution to avoid industrial action”.,tens%20of%20thousands%E2%80%9D%20of%20passengers.
