Rumour has it that the talks are continuing and will still go on tomorrow.

Getting back on track...

What do folk think will happen if, as seems highly likely, BASSA and CC89 reject the deal they have been negotiating with BA by a show of hands at the upcoming emergency meetings ? More particularly,...

you forget that the PCCC are not in dispute with BA, so have no involvement. Moreover, at present the PCCC are not recognised by BA as a negotiating body. That is not to say that they may not...

Given the statements about BA having agreed crewing on the 787 and A380, does this mean that BASSA have now got yet another issue to add to their pile to ballot for strike action on ? After all, BA...

Others may correct me, but it was my belief that Duncan Holley's case was to the Employment Tribunal, not the Employment Appeals Tribunal. Hence BAILII is unlikely to contain the judgement. The basis...
