Virgin faces Christmas industrial action threat

The Professional Pilots Union (PPU) is set to hold a ballot for industrial action which may see Virgin Atlantic flights affected over Christmas and the New Year period.

The vote, which follows the collapse of union recognition talks, will close on 16 December, with action potentially kicking off on 23 December and lasting throughout the festive season.

The PPU it would be "short of a strike", instead encompassing "withdrawal of pilot goodwill" such as agreeing to work overtime.

This would nonetheless leave a "significant number of flights not covered for the duration of any action", it added.
