The two tier workforce is no answer

Today's Grauniad reports that British Airways cabin crew are 'ready to strike' over a pay claim.

This story illustrates that the creation of a "two-tier" workforce is a recipe for further strife.

British Airways achieved a settlement of a previous dispute which allowed them to bring in new staff on worse (and cheaper) pay and conditions.

All they have done is store up trouble for the future.

As UNISON members at Lambeth College prepare to strike tomorrow in opposition to a two tier workforce I only hope their management are Guardian readers...
