British Airways strike off?

BRITISH AIRWAYS Christmas strike has been averted following a High Court decision that the Unite ballot was illegal.  The union has called for another vote whilst BA says that common sense must prevail.  In the meantime there is little doubt that the prevailing mood will cause commercial problems for the airline, passengers undoubtedly looking towards alternative, and more dependable, carriers for their forward bookings.  The Christmas holiday will probably provide for an unofficial, but very necessary, cooling off period for both sides. www.ba.com unitetheunion.com
