British Airways' pilots call off September 27 strike action

THE British Airline Pilots Association (BALPA) has called off the strike over pay and conditions scheduled for September 27 explaining that industrial actions that took place on September 9 and 10 had 'demonstrated the anger and resolve of pilots'.

'It was now time for a period of reflection before the dispute escalates further and irreparable damage is done to the brand,' BALPA added.



BALPA general secretary, Brian Strutton, said: 'Someone has to take the initiative to sort out this dispute and with no sign of that from BA the pilots have decided to take the responsible course. In a genuine attempt at establishing a time out for common sense to prevail, we have lifted the threat of the strike on September 27.'



However, the union warned that should the IAG-owned airline refuse 'meaningful new negotiations' it would pursue further industrial action, according to London's Air Cargo News.



The strikes that took place earlier this month had bought cargo activities on British Airways aircraft to a standstill.
