That can't be to obtain an injunction can it? Unite hasn't announced strike dates yet.

Hmmm...is there precedent for moving to restrain a union prior to the announcement of strikes based upon a faulty ballot?

In what appears to be an increasingly bitter battle, the British Airways plc v Unite dispute will go to trial at the High Court in March. BA is claiming damages in respect of the strikes in March last year.

I believe BA has already been awarded legal fees as a result of Unites suit over imposition. Unite may be getting a little tired of pursuing BASSA’s agendas irrespective of Red Len’s ranting. Unite’s funds for legal activities may become a little stretched. I wonder how anxious Unite will be to pursue all the individual Industrial Tribunals and claims for pay.

No news from the court today it seems. And it is claimed there is a "lock down" on the BASSA forum on the topic and the legality of the ballot in order to avoid prejudicing any litigation.

Stuff Len and the rest of them - booked BA to ORD end of February - with luck it will be a strike day. And the icing on the cake is its 744 on the way back!

At the moment the icing looks like it's all over the place after their 2 ft of snow.

Bet it doesn't take a week to get ORD fully functional, unlike LHR! Have a good one.

a waiting game

The travelweekly is not a source that I automatically look at, but nevertheless they say this
British Airways has denied a report in the national consumer press that it has launched a legal challenge to outlaw fresh strikes by cabin crew.
BA confirmed it has merely written to union Unite and to the body which oversees trade union votes, Electoral Reform Services, to express concerns about the recent ballot in which cabin crew voted to renew strike action.
A BA spokesman said: "All we have done is highlight our concerns about how the ballot was conducted. We are in dialogue with Unite and Electoral Reform Services."
The spokesman said BA was still in the process of trying to arrange a meeting with Unite officials to try to reach a settlement.

Regarding the latest ballot, none of the challenges should come as a surprise. We already have a legal precedent for the balloting of non union members resulting in an injunction and BA raised the issue of a new ballot being linked to the previous dispute over six months ago.

Why can't BASSA maintain an accurate membership database and why is Unite only seeking legal advice now?

Also, the smearing of the PCCC continues.

Must have touched a nerve, that page is now blank.


A bit like the BASSA 'what do we do now' book.

We need 40% of the cabin crew community to register with us so that we can approach BA. Only then, with your support, can we hope to have a more positive, collaborative relationship with BA.

At least he/she knew how many C's there are in "Professional Cabin Crew Council"

Unite's leader Len and the uniteba website have not managed to work that out yet!
