BRITISH AIRWAYS has at least settled one of its disputes regarding pay and staffing levels. The GMB union says that 97% of its more than 1,000 members working as ground staff have accepted the outcome of 12 months of quiet negotiations between the union and the airline. "This vote is a ringing endorsement of all the hard work done by GMB workplace representatives at BA over 12 months to achieve a negotiated settlement to secure a future for the airline," Mick Rix, GMB National Officer for Civil Aviation, said in a statement. It is understood that the deal includes a one-year pay freeze, as well as agreements on new employment and staffing levels. A total of 500 jobs will be lost, all through voluntary redundancies, and the agreement also sets in place procedures to deal with any future changes. www.ba.com www.gmb.org.uk
