United Kingdom - New offer from BA could postpone strike - June 21, 2010

On Sunday June 27, Unite, the union involved in the industrial dispute at British Airways (BA), that a new offer from BA could lead to the postponement of the new industrial action ballot which was set to begin on Tuesday, June 29th. Unite joint general secretary Tony Woodley said: “As a consequence of the company’s last and final offer the union and its representatives will have no choice but to delay our vote in order to allow our members to consult on the offer.” However, Unite has warned that it is not in a position to recommend the BA proposal to members because it does not fully reinstate staff travel arrangements that gave rise to earlier strike action (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 3 May 2010).
