Betty Girl, I gathered from other posts that BA have overestimated the extent of part time take up, and in any event, probably are not averse to being overstaffed in the short term while the threat...

AV F, I don't disagree with you, this is why I said BA, by continuing to negotiate, may have handed BASSA enough rope to hang themselves. BA seem happy to play a long game, which would presumably be...

As no one actually knows what the branch meetings will bring forth (whatever we may suspect), BA can't really do anything other than continue to negotiate in good faith.

If BASSA/CC89 agree the...

According to cabincrew.com, the CC concerned refused to remove the tags after being told by the aircraft captain to do so, so it is likely the suspension is for questioning/refusing the captain's...

BA did offer ACAS arbitration in the October 2010 offer, see extract below. And no, CC weren't allowed to vote on it.


Unite and British Airways agree that if any employee who has...

I'd guess BASSA will still have a majority of yes votes amongst those who vote at all, but that the overall vote will be down again, and I would also guess that as the total number of yes votes go...

I agree re BA 'sitting it out'.

As for IA on any future date, there may be no future date. It is noticeable that ever since the last BA Engineering strike, when BA had contingency...

Throughout, BA has only done what it said it will do. The company has been careful to do this, including paying the bonus to staff who have been on strike, simply because they did not warn beforehand...

I agree with this. BA will not go to the ultimate sanction against strikers, but they may sue Unite. Unite know this, hence the 'wierd and wonderful' alternates to strikes postulated by McCluskey.

I wouldn't have thought the ERS would have a view on the legality of the ballot if it were potentially illegal because of the actual questions asked being linked to a previous strike vote. They (ERS)...

Some of the reduction in crew 'numbers', so far as crew complements are concerned, in December 2009, and since, occurred because existing full time crew took part time. These and any other part time...

It does seem to be true that for most crew, the crewing levels, the original strike reason, have been accepted.

I doubt there are laws in HK/China that women should retire at 45, CC or otherwise. If it's only the enforced retirement that this court case is about, good luck to them.

I take your point, I hadn't thought of that.
