The long-running labor dispute between British Airways and the union representing its cabin crew is finally coming to an end.
With the threat of strike action over, the two sides reached a deal that will now go to a union vote. The vote is just a formality at this point with union leaders recommending that all members ratify the agreement.
Under the new deal, travel perks will be restored to the cabin crew beginning in July and pay raises amounting to 7.5 percent will be put in place over the next two years.
The agreement puts an end to one of the industry’s longest running labor disputes that culminated in 22 days of strike action last year.
