Carolyn Davies reports:

British Airways has suspended 15 flight attendants who wrote Facebook comments and sent private emails about a “name and shame” list of pilots who volunteered to help break any strike, the Guardian has learned.

The airline has also demanded that unions reveal the identities of a further 32 members of the cabin crew union, Bassa, who posted messages about the list on a thread on its discussion forum.


The wave of suspensions began at the weekend, it is understood, after one cabin crew worker acquired a list of 40 pilots who had volunteered to work as cabin stewards should a strike be called. That worker posted a message on a Facebook page saying they had the list, and asking others what should they do with it.

The list of pilots is not believed to have been published on Facebook, or on the Bassa site, but news of its existence spread through private emails forwarded to others.
