Reply To: BA cabin crew set to back new strikes

and your evidence that WW is ‘pulling the strings’ at BA is ??? Sorry, your statement simply doesn’t wash. I can quite appreciate that WW may well be still involved in the Unite dispute, but can see that the benefit of this is that it allows KW to get on with running the company and not be distracted by a sideshow.

Presumably you agree that Unite’s tactic of an ever-increasing list of demands is their way of ensuring that resolution is not reached, after all, assuming BA agreed to this set of demands, they would immediately pop up with a further shopping list. Whilst Messrs Simpson and Woodley may have negotiated in good faith, it seems that the BASSA and CC89 executives have no intention of doing so and that Len McCluskey supports this strategy. If this is what companies can expect from Unite, it doesn’t auger well for the future.
