Statement: British Airways

I am supporting the #BAStopThinkAgain campaign to demand that British Airways re-think their proposed staffing re-structures.       

I am supporting the #BAStopThinkAgain campaign to demand that British Airways re-think their proposed staffing re-structures.

Many constituents have written to me with regards to the ongoing issues for British Airways staff, their employment status and changes to pay in conditions.

William said: “Whilst I recognise the obvious strain COVID-19 is having on many tourism sectors, including aviation, I am concerned that the ongoing crisis is being used as an excuse to carry out a vast company restructure which in turn makes thousands redundant and forcing other staff onto contracts with less favourable pay and conditions. British Airways have a responsibility to treat their staff with dignity and respect”

William continued: “I will be supporting my colleague Huw Merriman MP, the House of Commons Transport Select Committee Chair, in his efforts to force a rethink by British Airways, and to work collaboratively with Unions and staff.”
