BA hope to avoid strike negotiations with new offer

Unite members set to vote on new deal

20 October 2010

British Airways (BA) has offered its cabin crew a new deal on travel perks in a bid to avoid further strike negotiations.

The Unite union has confirmed it will ballot its members on the firm's latest offer which aims to bring an end to the long-running dispute.

Cabin crew are unhappy that BA rescinded travel concessions from those who took part in earlier industrial action and aims to get these reinstated.

"There will be a consultative ballot on the offer and we're working to get this underway as soon as practically possible," said a Unite spokeswoman.

Since March, BA cabin crew have held 22 days of walkouts, costing the airline around £150 million.

The original dispute, which started almost 12 months ago, centred around pay and proposed staffing cuts.

The focus of the disagreement changed, however, when BA began disciplining employees for their role in the strikes.
