CABIN crew at British airline CityJet are to strike for five days in a fight against pay cuts.

The 36 workers are members of general union Unite.

The dispute involves proposed pay cuts of up to 50 per cent, new roster agreements and plans to axe night allowances on which staff depend heavily.

CityJet’s fleet of 25 aircraft is based at London’s City airport and operates flights to European cities including Amsterdam, Dublin, Florence, Nantes, Paris and Rotterdam.

Crew will strike from 5am on Thursday October 20 to 11.59pm the following day and again on October 24, 25 and 26.

The strikes coincide with industrial action by CityJet pilots represented by Unite in Dublin.

Unite regional officer Jo Jaques said: “The strike will cause severe disruption to the mainly business travellers who use London’s City airport.

“It is our view that the company is not taking its employees’ position seriously.”
