This could be the end of Unite as the BA cabin crew dispute drags on, and so it seems Unite are destined to fail. With no real chance of success in getting BA to reinstate the travel perks of Striking BA cabin crew – why should they..
With Unite rather stupidly demanding the reinstatement of travel perks, more for the press than any real chance of success.
Unite are demanding the travel perks be reinstated to the striking BA cabin crew (lol) before they call of the strike.. The trouble is Ba is never going to back down on this issue..
So British Airways and the Unite union are to hold fresh talks today as cabin crew workers stage their third day of strike action.
BA cabin crew union Unite and its joint secretary Tony Woodley are due to attend the meeting, despite warning on Monday that the Unite union could ballot members for further walkouts.
Cabin crew staff are continuing with the second of three five-day strikes, with a third due to start on 5 June.
BA has yet to comment on the threat of more industrial action in July.
Travel perks are the stumbling block
The talks will be held under the auspices of conciliation service Acas, but there is currently little sign of any breakthrough to end the long-running dispute.
The disagreement between Unite’s cabin crew workers and BA centres on jobs, pay and working conditions. Unite is also demanding that BA reinstates the travel perks of striking workers, and cancels disciplinary proceedings against others.
