BA crew Christmas strikes suspended

Planned strikes by British Airways cabin crew on Christmas Day and Boxing Day have been suspended, the Unite union has said.

Employees were due to walk out in a row over pay and conditions. The union said 4,500 workers employed on so-called “Mixed Fleet” contracts – who have joined since 2010 – were on lower pay than other staff.

Talks at conciliation service Acas have led to a revised offer which will be put to a ballot of union members. The airline said it welcomed the move.
