British Airways cabin staff dispute

Unite, the trade union representing British Airways cabin staff, has agreed to put a recommended offer to its 11,000 members working for the airline.  Details of the voting procedure have still to be confirmed.  If accepted it will bring to an end a long running dispute that has severely impacted on BA’s bottom line, many potential passengers abandoning the airline in search of more guaranteed seats.

Under the arrangement cabin crew travel perks will be restored, but not fully until 2013, wage rises will be limited to a capped RPI+ figure, and an annual bonus of £6,616 will be paid to mainline staff in lieu of individual allowances.

The cost saving for the airline will be in the order of £60m per year and BA will be able to recruit new staff on a new/different (cheaper) contract. www.ba.com www.unitetheunion.org.uk
