Unite to pursue legal action against BA contracts
November 3rd, 2009 by elisa

Following on from my previous blog regarding the likely British Airways Christmas strikes over proposed job cuts; it is now reported that legal action is being taken out by a union to try to stop them imposing contractual changes on 14,000 cabin crew without agreement.

The High Court challenge by Unite is over the imposition of new contracts, including the reduction of crewing levels, which BA will introduce on 16th November. The union is seeking an injunction against this imposition. The High Court hearing is currently set for this Thursday (5th November).

A mass meeting of cabin crew was held yesterday (2nd November) at Sandown racecourse, where Unite fed back information to members on why negotiations with the airline have stalled.

“Unite continues to seek a negotiated solution and remains willing to begin talks with the company at any time” a statement said.
