Interesting judgement. An unbiased view would be that the judge is giving Unite enough rope to hang themselves by. I can't see Unite putting up a very creditable opposition to an IT specialist...

Sorry, I'm getting a little tired with hearing about how cabin crew are fearful of seeing their income diminish in future years. In a previous job a proportion of my total salary was made up from...

Whilst I don't doubt that the outcome of the ballot will be yet another yes vote for industrial action, I think that any union members who believe that planes will be empty are living in a fool's...

A question for BASSA members (and indeed ex BASSA members)

How come given in 1997

no-one in BASSA seems to have bothered to ensure that the situation did not reoccur. You see, being a bear of little brain I would have thought that knowing that questions...

What may have escaped people's notice is that the 1997 incident involved the predecessor to the current branch secretary. Now you would have thought that given the Certification Officer's comments...

I'm totally foxed by Unite's comment about pregnant cabin crew. I thought that the EU regs dictated that female cabin crew stopped flying as soon as they learned they were pregnant. BA regs state...

there may be a crumb of comfort for Unite in that there is a cap set in TULRCA on the union's liability of 250,000, however, it is unclear whether BA could then pursue action through...
