Breaking news - British Airways strike ban overturned
Oh for the love of God. They're off, they're on, they're off, there's a volcano, they're on. Forces continue to conspire against British Airways after a panel of senior judges, including the Lord Chief Justice, overturned a ban on industrial action.
An injunction to prevent the strike was passed by the High Court on Monday, which deemed the union Unite had not reported results of its strike ballot correctly to members. After today's ruling, staff are now free to strike again, with dates for industrial action possible as early as next week.
While Unite boss Derek Simpson commented "this is not a moment for being triumphant," union member danced around outside the court singing "we are the champions". Regardless of who is in the right, sooner or later irreparable damage will be done to BA and their future revenues, if Icelandic volcanoes and previous strike action haven't done that already. Props!
