Virgin Atlantic pilots hold last-ditch talks over rostered days off

British Air Line Pilots' Association (BALPA) will meet Virgin Atlantic management today (24-Aug-2010) to attempt to resolve a dispute over rostered days off (Telegragh/Morningstar, 24-Aug-2010). BALPA has accused the airline of breaching agreements by denying pilots their entitlement to a minimum number of rostered days off. Virgin Atlantic pilots are entitled to 120 rostered days off per year on top of holiday leave, which is the equivalent of an office worker's weekends and bank holidays.
