UK minister calls planned BA strike unjustified
Britain's transportation secretary Andrew Adonis said the planned strike by British Airways' staff is unjustified and threatens the future of one of the country's major companies.
The union for BA cabin crew announced last week seven days of strikes from March 20 over a pay freeze and working conditions.
Adonis said the strike "will ... threaten the very existence of BA". He added that aside from the inconvenience to passengers, the planned strike also "the future of one of our great companies in this country".
