One week after his strong victory over the more moderate incumbent president of the British Air Line Pilots? Association, 747 pilot John Frohnsdorff is taking a hard stand against British Airways? (BA?s) attempts to lay off BALPA members while continuing to cut wages for the second year in a row. Frohnsdorff---who made it clear before elections that, if victorious, he would step down as soon as a replacement was found---has told airlines that the union will not allow them to use September 11 as an excuse to lay pilots off and extract concessions from those who remain. Already trailing many of their American and German counterparts by up to twenty percent in pay due to concessions made last year, pilots at BA are in no mood to go along with management?s plans to cut pay further and lay off almost a quarter of its employees.
