Reply To: BA Cabin Crew Strike – Consolidated Thread

Back to Forum


BASSA never offered a permanent, structural reduction in costs. Is is deceptive to suggest they did.

BA never asked the Union for a pay cut; it always (and still maintains) the position that current crew pay and T&Cs would remain as they do today, and it is now offering a pay RISE as part of the most recent offer which was never put to a vote of BASSA members, denying their democratic right to determine their Union’s position on this matter.

BASSA expected any savings made in the short term to be fully repaid – in effect it was a “loan” which did nothing to address the structural problem.

BASSA suggested it could generate £170m of savings; this figure was independently audited by PwC, and found to total less than £52m, THREE TIMES less than was claimed.
