The latest talks between BA and the Unite union have failed to break the deadlock, with conciliation service Acas saying that the two sides “were unable to move closer to an agreement”.
Acas had tabled a “potential way forward” to both sides last week, aimed at settling the dispute which has already seen BA cabin crew take part in 22 days of industrial action so far this year. But having met both BA and Unite separately yesterday, Acas has realeased a statement saying:
“Regrettably, the parties were unable to move closer to an agreement. At present there are no further meetings planned but Acas will monitor developments and our services remain available.”
Unite had last week said that plans to hold a fresh ballot on further strike action were at an “advanced stage”.
