Found this in Flight International for the 13th June 1968. I hope they don't mind me posting it here:-
There are no indications that the very top level of the BoT favour a BOAC-BEA merger
BEA pilots have amassed a £50,000 strike fund, growing at £5,000 per month, to back up their claim for salaries up to £6,800 p.a. for two-crew One-Eleven operation.
Funny how things turn out
