You no longer need actual strikes to pressure the company - ballots can have the same effect, since they carry the threat of strikes. It would now appear that a simple, well-placed cross on the ballot paper removes some of the need to actually lose money and stand on picket lines
A fact that is evidently clear to the thousands of BA CC who keep voting for strike action but then don't actually go on strike.

I recall DH being vitriolic about such people in the past, calling them "beneath contempt". So keeping the faith now requires an entire union to ignore strike ballots and work, and thus be "beneath contempt"?

Surely, even the most diehard BASSA members must see through such nonsense
