British Airways Authorities Calls for Action by Unions
British Airways mother IAG sees 178 million pounds evaporate every week as a result of the corona crisis. Interventions are necessary to deal with the crisis.
British Airways CEO Alex Cruz once again clarified the need for this to the unions.
According to Cruz, British society and mother IAG currently have no right to exist, and competitors are ready to take over the business, according to a memo to the staff.
He urged the unions to participate constructively in the discussions on the proposed layoffs.
BA wants to cut up to 12,000 jobs. That announcement caused the necessary criticism from, among others, politics.
Among other things, the company was blamed with schemes to protect jobs while saying goodbye to 28 percent of the staff.
