Ba Management has ofered to open the books and have talks to BASSA/Unite, they have refused, citing “preconditions”.
BALPA, the Pilots Union, did take up management offer of a talks, saw the books, and have a negotiated settlement which involves reduced salary and changed working practices.
Unite has FAILED to go to the negotiating table, and has FAILED its membership. It now deserves exactly what it will get i.e. no deal and dictated terms = bad for its members.
