The Daily Telegraph reported the move, which follows the dismissal of another employee on the same grounds last month. BA said the pair had been 'found guilty of gross misconduct for playing leading roles in orchestrating unballotted and illegal industrial action,' according to the Telegraph.

The unofficial strike by BA ground staff last summer was launched in sympathy with 700 workers sacked by Gate Gourmet, the airline's catering supplier.
