BA pilots vote to accept salaries reduction deal

British Airways pilots voted on Saturday to accept a deal that includes salaries reduction by 20% and 270 people fired due to the aviation sector being heavily impacted by a coronavirus pandemic.

According to aviation union BALPA, the deal includes firing of 12,000 workers and slashing wages by 20%, then by eight percent over two years, after which there shouldn't be any more salaries cuts.

BALPA general secretary Brian Strutton stated that union members "have made a pragmatic decision in the circumstances but the fact that we were unable to persuade BA to avoid all compulsory redundancies is bitterly disappointing."
