Talks continue over suggested BA Unite deal

Proposals have been put forward in an attempt to resolve the bitter dispute between British Airways and cabin crew members of the Unite union.

Suggestions have been presented for “a way forward” to end the long-running row over crew pay, terms and working conditions.

But details of the proposals brought to the table by the conciliation service Acas are being kept confidential, as reported yesterday by Travel Weekly.

Acas chief conciliator Peter Harwood said: “This is a very damaging dispute for all concerned. The proposals we have put forward must understandably remain confidential, however, to enable the parties to reflect on them without the glare of publicity.”

He added: “I am expecting to meet the parties again early this week but given past events I hope everyone understands that the timing of any meetings and their location will be kept secret.”
