Rally to support BA cabin crew

BAFull support from RMT's London Transport Regional Council to striking British Airways cabin crew. Like us, they are transport workers fighting for workers' rights, services and safety in the face of a hostile management, press vilification and massive political pressure to surrender. Solidarity forever!

Venue: Bedfont Football Club, The Orchard, Hatton Road, Bedfont, London TW14 8QT

Cabin crew will walk out just after midnight (00.01 hours, 20th March) after BA failed to table acceptable proposals on the issues of job cuts and crews' fears that management is driving down standards at the airline.

Unite will hold a rally in support of the thousands of brave men and women who are showing the courage to stand up to British Airways by taking strike action.

These Unite members understand the pressures the recession places on the company. But they believe BA's future and 40,000 jobs, depend on it staying a premier airline. For over one year crew have tried to negotiate. They've even offered to help save the service by making sacrifices - up to £62 million in savings. But BA under the management of Willie Walsh won't listen.

The speakers at the event include Len McCluskey, Unite assistant general secretary.

The media is welcome to attend.
