Simpson: BA 'looking to break the union'


Today is the last day in a series of strikes by British Airways cabin crew. The Unite union says the walkouts have cost the airline £154m and caused major disruption. The airline insists it has been operating services throughout the industrial action.

Derek Simpson, joint General Secretary of the Unite union, accused BA of "looking for regime change if not absolutely breaking the union."

He said that the airline was "imposing its will" on staff and changes to the workforce.
