Virgin pilots hit out over days off

Virgin Atlantic pilots have warned the firm’s managers not to push them as the two sides meet in last-ditch talks over working hours. The pilots are claiming Virgin has reneged on a deal allowing them a minimum number of scheduled days off every year. Under the rota they currently work under they receive the same number of days off as an office worker but when the days fall is not easily predictable. The union representing the pilots has not called a vote on what action it is willing to take but has not ruled out striking.
