It was much bandied, but as far as I can see, the main crew are at or nearly at the bottom of the pile and this is my point. The employer has been given free hand in setting the terms and conditions of its new staff and that is how it has acted.

You also have a very hard roster with new varieties of combining long and short haul flights and promotion into one position, rather than one or two grades above junior.

Now I understand that the sole reason for this whole process was to make a substantial saving, but it appears on the face of it that they have wrung every last of saving that is possible and within the law.
Absolutely right. BA have taken the opportunity they were given. Why Unite as the largest uk union didnt see it is beyond my comprehension. This is an example of idiotic union behaviour and opportunism by a company that cant believe their luck. Thanks Unite, none of this would have happened if you had controlled your branch.
