At this stage, and in the interests of acceleratng a conclusion, if I was BA I would pull the pin from the proverbial grenade and toss it into the BASSA/AMICUS/Unite meeting later today by taking the current offer off the table (on the legitimate grounds of BASSA/AMICUS's failure to recommend) and then watching the ensuing bickering, in-fighting and panic with mild amusement.

This would remove several of the options from the Union and its Branches' discussions leaving them with nowhere to go but either call a strike ballot or capitulate to working under the present Ts & Cs for the foreseeable future.

Unite cannot possibly approve a strike ballot and BASSA/AMICUS will not capitulate - but there would be no other options.

But then I have been known to be mischievous!
