BA’s leadership is corrupt and incompetent, not stupid, and it would be stupid for it to have opened multiple dispute fronts at the same time. Am sure BALPA’s time will come as there are a plethora of unemployed US pilots who would work for half of the current BA rate.
You are right that there have been occasions when BASSA has refused to negotiate with the BA eg when BA broke long standing agreements. Likewise there have been times when BA have refused to negotiate with BASSA. Hey Krug…. why pitch half a story when the full facts are better… or is that being manipulative… shock horror a BA mouthpiece being manipulative?
Am I surprised?… no.
Keep paddling and pedalling BA’s mis information, I guess if you repeat it enough times you’ll get to believe it – though, and I don’t mean to shatter your illusions, I’m afraid it doesn’t make it true. Sorry.
