BA resumes talks with unions over shake-up

British Airways is resuming talks today with unions at resolving a row over cost-cutting measures, including thousands of job losses and a pay-freeze. Unions and airline management spent several hours yesterday discussing the company’s proposals.

The airline said it had wanted to reach a deal by June 30 on around 3,700 job cuts, a pay freeze of up to two years and other changes, but the deadline passed without agreement.

Meetings will resume in a bid to break the deadlock and get talks back on track.
