CITY VIEWS: ARE YOU WORRIED ABOUT A SPRING OF STRIKES?

ROSS D’AURIGNY | AURIGNY COMMODITIES
“I think its become inevitable that we will see a spring of strikes and rail workers are next. The strikers have lost all semblance of reality about what it all started over. The trade unions don’t realise they are costing Gordon Brown the election. We are in for a torrid time. ”

“Rail strikers said they would take action and so a spring of strikes looks possible. I don’t agree with the strikers or understand their rationale as it is clear British Airways only made the cuts because it is not doing very well. They should be thankful to have a job. ”

“I’m a little bit worried about what lies ahead and am not booking with BA until the strikes are sorted. But I do have some sympathy with the strikers. In the news the other day it said the cabin crew get paid £11K a day - how could you get paid that little and survive in London? ”
