BASSA and Mixed fleet Unite are joining together to raise money for our Unjustly Sacked colleagues, British Airways Hong Kong International Cabin Crew.
These colleagues were callously invited to a meeting and handed a letter from British Airways informing them they are too “expensive” to employ and terminating their contract with immediate effect.
A percentage of these crew have now been offered just one month’s salary in lieu of notice , others will leave with nothing.
We all believe that this is morally and fundamentally wrong.
At a stroke British Airways has taken away the livelihoods, career and future for our once valued international colleagues.
As a Union, we cannot prevent BA's decision to do so or the brutality with which they have chosen to do so. However, as colleagues and in Solidarity, we can all donate and support and help to ease the immediate financial worries of our colleagues in Hong Kong, who still have bills to pay but no job .
The funds we raise will be sent directly to Union leader Carol Ng for her members. Carol is the General Secretary of the BA Hong Kong International Cabin Crew Association.
She is also our comrade, union supporter and above all a friend to all BASSA and Mixed Fleet members.
Carol supported both BASSA and MFU members through two disputes. It is time to repay such loyalty.
Please support and Donate what you can spare to hard working, undervalued and now unemployed Hong Kong based colleagues.
