The British Airways objectionable “Fire and rehire” tactic mentioned at the parliament.

Gavin Newlands

Gavin Newlands a member of parliament of the United Kingdom has proposed an emergency bill to the House of Commons, which will prevent companies to use the “fire and rehire” tactics on their employees. The bill comes in response to the British Airways threat to sack more than 40.000 of his staff and rehire about 30.000 of them on worse contracts. It looks like British Airways is trying to surf on the Covid19 crisis to make some drastic and unnecessary changes to the way they spend their money. Jet Attitude has unsuccessfully tried to contact IAG (owner of British Airways) to get their opinions on the matter.
