Fresh transport chaos hits UK

London, January 10

Industrial action brought fresh disruption for travellers in Britain on Tuesday as rail workers and airline cabin crew walked off the job, the day after a major strike on the London Underground. 

British Airways was forced to cancel 48 flights over two days at London's Heathrow airport after cabin crew began a 48-hour strike, but said it would ensure that all passengers were able to travel.

The Unite union called the strike after rejecting a deal proposed by the airline in December, which union leaders called ‘poverty pay’levels for staff who joined after 2010. London's subway system was virtually shut down on Monday by members of the RMT union over job cuts and ticket office closures. — AFP
