BA JDL 49-1Flying British Airways over the holidays? Not so fast.

Members of Unite, the union that represents 2,500 members of the airline’s cabin crew, voted for the job action by 4-1. The walkouts are slated to begin December 21.

The union claims that cabin crew who have joined BA since 2010 earn less than other employees at the airline.

Unite represents 2,500 members of the airline’s 16,000 flight attendants. The union is required to give the airline seven days notice in advance of any strike.

The prospect of a strike comes as British commuters continue to face travel delays after a walkout by Southern Rail employees.
