Support the BA Baggage Handlers!
Victimised for taking ‘secondary action’. In a magnificent show of solidarity, BA baggage handlers walked out in support of their fellow trade unionists. Their show of solidarity catapulted the dispute onto the world stage, and there has been sympathy action in the USA, Canada and Australia. However, the action is considered ‘unlawful’ under Britain’s anti-trade union laws (a direct legacy of Thatcher’s systematic attack on workers rights in the 1980s). BA has now sought to take disciplinary action against ‘ringleaders’ of the walkout; the senior shop stewards and negotiators for BA’s baggage handlers.
