Renewed strike ballot by British Airways cabin crew
January 12th, 2010 by elisa

A renewed strike ballot by cabin crew union members working for British Airways is planned for next week on the 22nd January. Unite union are required to give the airline a week’s notice.

As a result of a High Court injunction secured by BA before Christmas, Unite is re-balloting its cabin crew members employed at BA for industrial action.

The re-ballot comes despite the union and BA resuming talks to negotiate a settlement to the dispute over cabin crew terms and conditions under the auspices of the TUC. Both sides will be represented at a meeting at the TUC to start the process of finding a resolution to the dispute.

Unite joint general secretaries Derek Simpson and Tony Woodley said: “We have said all along that this dispute could only be resolved through negotiation, rather than imposition or litigation, so we are delighted to be joining BA management in talks at the TUC.

“We will be approaching those talks in a constructive spirit, seeking to find a settlement that meets the real concerns of BA’s skilled, loyal and professional cabin crew, while keeping the airline flying.”
