Reply To: BA Cabin Crew Strike – Consolidated Thread

Back to Forum


And at any rate, the need to invest to train extra crew is a (relatively modest) cost ENTIRELY made necessary by BASSA and the Union Trots.

Seems the Union are close to agreeing a climbdown, as they know they haven’t got a leg to stand on.

As I predicted, they haven’t the stomach for a strike. So let’s summarise:

– 3.5% pay cut.

– £1.2million extra costs borne by Union membership for the lost court case.

– Damaged Union credibility after the ridiculous 12 days of Christmas strike threat.

– Almost universal removal of public support for hard working cabin crew.

– Tens of millions lost by BA as a result of bookings made elsewhere, some of which will never return.

– BASSA has got itself a worse deal than was on the table last year.

– Union power at BA broken by Willie Walsh
