Freedom and democracy

British Airways cabin crew to go on strike: 

Earnings were advertised between £21,000 and £25,000 but, in reality, start at just over £12,000 plus £3 an hour flying pay, Unite said. 
"Not surprisingly, the crew have rejected a 2% pay offer and on-board customer service managers are furious," the union said. 
"They do not have collective bargaining rights. The managers have also endured a six-year pay freeze. 
Meanwhile, Willie Walsh pocketed £8.8m. British Airways and the parent company IAG reported profits of £1.4bn, up 64% on last year.
