CNBC: Britain's largest union says British Airways PLC has suspended 15 cabin crew members because they allegedly posted inappropriate comments on their Facebook pages.

The Unite union called the move unacceptable.

Airline spokesman Euan Fordyce said Thursday that about a dozen cabin crew have been suspended while internal investigations are being carried out.

Fordyce said the suspensions had to do with a number of reasons, including inappropriate comments the staffers posted online. He added that the airline "will not tolerate intimidation of our staff," but did not provide details.

British Airways is locked in a long-standing dispute with cabin crew over issues including wages, job security and working conditions. Unite has called for a strike vote by members.
