“This is a great result for our check-in members at British Airways,” said Unite general secretary Sharon Graham.
International Consolidated Airlines Group (LSE: IAG). UK flag carrier British Airways has reached an agreement with its check-in staff to increase their pay. This will prevent strike action.
Both Unite and GMB claimed that workers accepted a pay proposal that they said was a 13% increase in pay.
After British Airways refused to reverse the 10% pay cut during the pandemic, more than 500 Unite members voted for industrial action.
British Airways decided to backtrack on its pay cut. Unite stated that the cuts would be made in “multiple stages” because airlines and airports are already experiencing delays due to staff shortages.
It will also reverse the pay cuts that were made in 2020 starting October 2022.
Sharon Graham, general secretary of Unite, stated that “This is a great outcome for our check-in members at British Airways.”
“By coming together, they forced BA to do right and restore the levels of pay that were slashed during the pandemic.”
