Unite calls for renewed talks with BA

The Unite trade union has called for talks to resume with BA over its dispute with cabin crew after rejecting the latest offer from the airline.

Unite had previously raised the possibility of strikes during the Christmas period after suspending a ballot of cabin crew on a deal to settle their long-running dispute.

In a statement released today Tony Woodley, Unite joint general secretary said: “I met today with BA cabin crew representatives.

“It was unanimously agreed that the last offer tabled by British Airways management in the current dispute could not be recommended to the members. 

“I am therefore contacting the company with a view to reopening discussions to seek to achieve a recommendable settlement to be put to cabin crew.”
