Positive talks for BA and Unite
April 20th, 2011 by elisa

‘Positive’ talks were held between British Airways cabin crew and the airline’s new chief executive yesterday. A joint statement said Unite general secretary Len McCluskey, BA chief executive Keith Williams and cabin crew representatives “had a positive meeting today, and further discussions will be held in the near future to speed a resolution of the dispute”.

Last week the deadline for the strike date announcement was extended in order to avoid threatened strikes over this Easter break.

The row started nearly two years ago, initially over cost cutting. The dispute has now progressed over BA’s decision to take away travel concessions from cabin crew who went on the initial strikes. Unite is also demanding an independent review of disciplinary procedures and measures to deal with concerns over changes in onboard crew numbers.
