Virgin cabin crew rejects pay deal

3rd Sep 2007

In a consultative ballot, over 2000 members of the Virgin Atlantic cabin crew have overwhelmingly rejected Virgin’s latest pay offer. 92% of the staff rejected the deal and Unite is now preparing to hold a strike ballot.

Unite will be meeting with Virgin Atlantic management next week in an attempt to resolve the outstanding issue of pay and staffing.

Unite National Officer, Brian Boyd says,

“Unite is now preparing to ballot its members on industrial action at Virgin Atlantic. The company’s latest offer still falls short of our members’ aspirations and they have sent a clear message to the company that they are prepared to act. Unite will be working tirelessly on behalf of its members to reach an acceptable conclusion.”
