Court Clears Way For BA Strikes

"London, England (CNN) -- A British court Thursday granted an appeal filed by the union representing British Airways cabin crews, British Airways and the union said. The High Court ruling in London cleared the way for a series of planned strikes but it was not immediately clear whether the strikes would go ahead, according to both parties. ""Despite the obvious enthusiasm of colleagues here, this is not a moment for being triumphant,"" said Derek Simpson, the joint general-secretary of the Unite union. ""We shouldn't have been in this process."" Pressed on whether the union may still stage strikes, Simpson, speaking outside the court, repeated, ""We will not strike before Monday if there's no settlement."""
