by | 16th, June 2009

BRITISH Airways has sent out a missive asking staff to work free for up to one month.

Staff can volunteer to work for one week and one month’s unpaid leave, or do unpaid work.

By way of an example, BA’s chief executive Willie Walsh has volunteered to work unpaid in July, seeing him not take a month’s salary of £61,000.

Walsh calls it a “fight for survival”.

“I am looking for every single part of the company to take part in some way in this cash-effective way of helping the company’s survival plan. It really counts.”

Anorak suggests looking at the figtus in deails.

The BBC says 30,000 staff workd for BA. But in the Mail:
