bmibaby pilots vote for strike

bmibaby has been advised by BALPA (British Airline Pilots’
Association) that 90 of bmibaby’s 189 pilot workforce have voted in
favour of strike action.  This represents 47% of the total bmibaby pilot

Given that less than 50% of bmibaby’s pilots voted for a strike bmibaby
welcomed BALPA’s decision not to proceed with one.  BALPA have requested
a meeting with bmibaby to attempt to find a way through the dispute and the company
is reflecting on that proposal.

bmibaby’s offer of negotiations for a multi year pay deal for 2007
onwards remains on the table and the company remain hopeful that any industrial
action can be avoided. 

Customers are advised to make no changes to their travel plans.  bmibaby
have contingency plans in place to deal with any operational disruption
and will keep customers advised of current information via its website,
