Unite union bargaining with BA

Union gives BA until June 29th to reach agreement

24 June 2010

British Airways (BA) cabin crew could hold a ballot on further industrial action if strike negotiations between Unite and the airline fail.

Unite announced that BA must "demonstrate that it is willing to negotiate a solution" before June 29th or risk further consequences.

Strike action could occur as staff are concerned over the use of other employees to cover as cabin crew and the removal of travel perks from those who went on strike

Brian Boyd, Unite national officer for civil aviation, claimed the union did not seek conflict and simply wished to reach an agreement.

He said: "Drop the tough talk and work with us to deliver the change needed for the future and preserve the standards associated with this great airline."

If strikes do go ahead, BA aim to fly all long-haul services and a substantial proportion of short-haul flights from Heathrow.

The 22 days of strikes that have already taken place this have cost the airline an estimated £150 million.
