BA Paid annual leave judgement - UK Supreme COurt

http://www.supremecourt.gov.uk/docs/...ss-summary.pdf

looks like the pilots have won and it goes to the Employment Tribunal for determination of what is due (I think)

A win that's been 6 years in the making. It helps cabin crew too. I know many take issue with BALPA but it gives them some extra cash too, and you didn't even have to do anything for it.

I reckon that before C/C get anything they or their reps are going to have to go through a long battle with BA .Im not counting my chickens yet.

As far as I recall it a large number of BALPA members had (at least on paper) to agree to some form of financial commitment should the action have gone pear shaped...I certainly recall filling paperwork in, not a big deal not exactly doing nothing...

Nope, AFAIK precedent will apply, as I'm sure the appropriate Cabin crew union reps will point out to the grateful recipients in the fullness of time .

You sound disappointed, did you not want the law to be applied in your case?

In this particular situation I did very little. It started before I was a commercial pilot. However of the many reasons I joined this professional association is I wanted to protect my t's and c's as well as possible. This is one part of it.

If you were a BALPA member you'd know what the next part is. It's all on the BALPA forum. And just in case you were wondering there are no further appeals. An employment tribunal will now set the levels, but the precedent has been set across the uk industry by the Supreme Court.

Dont really see how you can infer that I sound disappointed from my comment.I just sensed that you were having a cheap go at c/c.Of course I will be very happy to recieve any extra income and am happy for flight crew as well and am grateful to BALPA for helping to rectify a situation that is very unfair.

I guess we both lost something in translation. No shot at CC at all very pleased for all workers. Actually it's probably cabin crew that have the most to win. All aspects of pay are to be included. I read that as commission as well!! That part I think your union will have to argue on your behalf. But the groundwork is done.
