Unite and Bassa tail wagging the dog

The lunacy of the whole Ba cabin crew strike is going down to more lunacy after the Bassa branch of unite lost the plot…

How can you strike over travel perks when you were on strike – no employer in their right mind is going to pay you those get real..

Unite say the main stumbling blocks now are the travel perks that were taken away from members who went on strike in March and disciplinary action which has been taken against more than 50 of its members.

Bassa secretary Duncan Holley said he believed Mr Walsh was “determined to break the union”.

Mr Holley, a former BA staffer who worked in cabin crews for 34 years until he was sacked this month after disciplinary hearings, told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme that Mr Walsh had never agreed to negotiate with his 12,000 members.

“He keeps talking about us being dysfunctional – we actually are the biggest branch in the country; we represent a third of his workforce,” he said.

He added that he did not want to disrupt customers’ plans but he had to look after his 12,000 members.

The first strike is due to last for five days from Monday, but two more five-day stoppages are timetabled to begin on 30 May and 5 June.
