British Airways cargo staff to strike for nine days


Cargo workers at British Airways will start with strike on Friday, December 25. For now, the union decided strike will continue until January 2, 2021.

Per Unite statement: more than 850 workers will strike. The nine-day strike will cause severe disruption to the company's ability to bring goods into the UK. BA disputed Unite's claims on pay and urged the union to help resolve the situation through more talks.

Thousands of European truckers remain stuck close to the major cross-Channel port of Dover on England's south coast while the drivers wait to pass a Covid test in order to return to France.
