British Airways cabin staff problems continue

Unite, the umbrella organisation for BA’s BASSA and Cabin Crew 89 unions has gone back on its word to recommend accepting the airline’s offer to resolve the long running employment dispute.  The continuance of the problem is bad news for the airline, and ultimately not good for the staff either.

In a statement BASSA said: "There are some good parts within BA's offer, in particular their acceptance of binding independent ACAS arbitration, but there are many other clauses which we simply, as a trade union, cannot recommend."

The union says it intends to go ahead with a consultative ballot on the offer which could result in industrial action over the Christmas holiday period. www.ba.com www.unitetheunion.org.uk
