Vir­gin pi­lots’ Xmas strikes

Daily Mirror - - NEWS -

PI­LOTS at Vir­gin At­lantic are to go on strike from De­cem­ber 22 to Christ­mas Day, in a dis­pute over union recognition.

The Pro­fes­sional Pi­lots Union said its mem­bers voted by more than 7-1 in favour of in­dus­trial ac­tion.

The PPU rep­re­sents a third of Vir­gin’s pi­lots.

Spokesman Steve Johnson said it had been “shut out” and mem­bers felt “bul­lied into this ac­tion by a com­pany that chooses to ig­nore them”.

Vir­gin said: “A small num­ber of our pi­lots have voted for in­dus­trial ac­tion.”
