BA looks to be taking a more conciliatory tone.

“BA also softened its tone, declining to repeat its claim that less than half of the cabin crew workforce of 13,500 employees is in favour of walkouts. “This is a time for co-operation, not confrontation,” said BA. “We began talks with Unite earlier this month, and those talks are continuing. We hope they will bring an end to this dispute, which is what the overwhelming majority of our cabin crew want.”

Also within Waterside the “I’m backing BA” campaign initiated by WW is not getting the support it started with as increasing numbers of employees see the tactics BA have used and fear for their own positions in future.
