Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Dismiss and Re-engage Tactics (10 Nov 2020)

Kim Johnson: Increasingly, rogue bosses such as British Airways, Centrica and ESS are using the covid crisis to cut pay and terms and conditions and are exploiting the legal loophole to fire and rehire loyal staff. With many workers now facing an impossible choice between losing pay or losing their job, will the Minister explain how these scandalous tactics can possibly be legal in the first place, and...

Employment (Dismissal and Re-employment) ( 4 Nov 2020)

Gavin Newlands: ...for their help with getting it this far. Tens of thousands of workers have been forced to the edge of a cliff by employers who have suddenly discovered the value of ignoring loyalty. Some 30,000 British Airways employees were told to suck up huge wage cuts and slashed conditions or join the dole queue. For some, this meant a cut in take-home pay of 60%-plus. They were told that they were...

Transport: Transport Sector: Support and Covid-19 Emergency Funding (22 Oct 2020)

Hannah Bardell: A constituent of mine worked as a member of the cabin crew for British Airways out of Edinburgh for over 21 years. They have been forced out of their job and pressured to sign an agreement that has no transparency of the pay breakdown; frankly, they have been totally shafted by BA. Does the Transport Secretary recognise that, on the one hand, there is an urgent need for more financial support...

7. Welsh Conservatives Debate: Impact of local coronavirus restrictions on employers (14 Oct 2020)

Mick Antoniw: poverty. Can I also say how disgraceful it is that the Tories, when they talk about business—there's not been a single Welsh Tory I've heard that's come up that has spoken up in terms of the British Airways workers in south Wales, those that have been fired and then re-hired on lower terms and conditions by an organisation that has received public money and now seeks to use COVID to...

Covid-19 Economic Support Package (14 Oct 2020)

Alex Davies-Jones: these industries. We know that the aviation sector is facing specific and substantial challenges because of the virus. In Pontypridd, major employers including GE Aviation in Nantgarw and British Airways in Llantrisant have sadly been forced to make redundancies. Across this country, 1.6 million people’s jobs and livelihoods rely on the aviation sector. We cannot just let those...

RAF Valley: Funding and Employment: Jet Zero Council — [Mrs Maria Miller in the Chair] (14 Oct 2020)

Catherine McKinnell: ...retain restrictions on visitors from the UK. The crisis continues to affect our aviation industry, and there are repercussions for the wider economy, too: the mass redundancies in airlines such as British Airways and easyJet are devastating for the employees and their families. Colleagues may be aware of the negative attention that was generated recently by what I regard as the rather...

Public Health Restrictions: Government Economic Support (13 Oct 2020)

Stephen Doughty: ...of Glamorgan are under a local lockdown and dealing with the economic pressures that that brings. Does the Chief Secretary agree that it is deeply disappointing that major local employers such as British Gas/Centrica are engaging in the type of “fire and rehire” tactics that we have seen others try to use, such as British Airways? What message does he have for the chief executive of...

Business Standards (30 Sep 2020)

John Martin McDonnell: much of what is good but also, regrettably, some of what is just not acceptable. I want to cite some examples of companies such as Warburton’s and Richer Sounds, and contrast them with British Airways and Amazon. Two years ago, the bakers’ union and Warburton’s secured a groundbreaking agreement. It provided the workers with job security, ongoing skills development and better...

Holidays: Cancellations - Question (30 Sep 2020)

the Earl of Caithness: ..., having had a holiday cancelled. Does my noble friend agree that while the ATOL scheme is excellent, waiting 90 days to receive repayment is far too long, and will she join me in condemning British Airways for its appalling, obstructive attitude towards making repayments?

Support for Self-employed and Freelance Workers (17 Sep 2020)

Alyn Smith: ...people have been. They feel aggrieved and hurt, and that needs to be acknowledged. I have supported the schemes as far as they have gone, but we are talking about people who are not Wetherspoons, British Airways or Costa Coffee. We are talking about pram shops, electricians, taxi drivers, mortgage brokers music shops, gym equipment makers—the real entrepreneurs, who are the lifeblood of...

Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (17 Sep 2020)

Chris Stephens: ...unemployment in the 1930s. We are seeing an explosion of redundancies, while the Government are saying they will do whatever it takes, but the point has been well made: it has not stopped Centrica, British Airways and other employers who wish to fire and rehire. I hope the Government will look very sympathetically at the private Member’s Bill put forward by my hon. Friend the Member for...

Transport: Transport Supply Chains: Covid-19 (17 Sep 2020)

Gavin Newlands: I echo the comments of the shadow Minister on the bus accident in Winchester. Yesterday, the British Airways chief executive told the Transport Committee that he would protect BA at all costs. Those costs will be borne by 10,000-plus jobless employees and the remainder whose terms and conditions have been permanently slashed and are as yet unknown. Many of those jobs and thousands of others...

Transport: Aviation Sector Jobs (17 Sep 2020)

Munira Wilson: As has already been noted, while it is welcome that British Airways has potentially dropped some of its bully-boy tactics of threatening to fire and rehire its workforce on much worse conditions, it comes too late for many employees who had taken the difficult decision to take voluntary redundancy, such as the single father in my constituency who could not afford to feed his family on 40% of...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: British Airways: Conditions of Employment (16 Sep 2020)

Dan Jarvis: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, with reference to the email correspondence to British Airways staff of 2 June 2020 on the Coronavirus Jobs Retention Scheme, what discussions he has had with (a) Cabinet colleagues and (b) representatives of the International Airlines Group on proposed redundancies and changes to terms and conditions of employment.

Scottish Parliament: Sustainable Aviation beyond Covid-19 (16 Sep 2020)

Colin Smyth: ...and hit working people hard, and they need to end. I was proud to stand side by side recently with members of Unite the union when they came to Dumfries as part of their campaign against the British Airways betrayal. That company was firing all its 42,000 staff and rehiring on inferior terms and conditions of employment those whose jobs have not been axed. I have stood side by side with...

Covid-19 Update - Statement (14 Sep 2020)

the Earl of Clancarty: Operation Moonshot, have the Government a date in mind for testing audience members at theatres and sports venues? Secondly, does the Minister agree that we should now be testing at airports, as British Airways is asking for?

Written Answers — Treasury: Aviation: Coronavirus (14 Sep 2020)

Ruth Cadbury: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what representations his Department has received from (a) British Airways and (b) International Airlines Group on the Government's support for the aviation sector.

Backbench Business - Aviation SectorBackbench Business (10 Sep 2020)

Jim McMahon: ...this debate to take place—part of me wonders why the Government did not use their own time to allow it to take place a little sooner. I also thank the trade union movement—Unite, GMB, the British Airline Pilots’ Association, and others—for giving a voice to workers in the industry during a difficult time. Finally, I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Wythenshawe and Sale East...

Business of the House (10 Sep 2020)

Dame Cheryl Gillan: I welcome my hon. Friend to the Dispatch Box. Notwithstanding the debate on aviation later today, let me give just one example of how British Airways is treating long-term employees. I have a constituent whose contract has two months to run. She has been sent a new contract that expects her, in just over a week, to agree to a cut of thousands of pounds to her pay, and to transfer to a...

Protection of Jobs and Businesses ( 9 Sep 2020)

Gavin Newlands: My hon. Friend will have heard me raise with the Chief Secretary those companies that have abused the furlough by using it to pay for mass redundancies—British Airways is not alone; Centrica and others have followed suit. However, he failed to answer the question about the firing and rehiring of staff at massively reduced wages. Does she think that is fair?
