Oh Tete, what a short memory you have!

Remember what originally caused all of this? Yes, it was the “imposition” of changes to crewing levels which Unite fought so vigorously to resist it went to court no less than three times.

Looking at each of the ten items above, almost every one points to;

a) the original failure of BASSA/CC89 to negotiate

b) the original call for industrial action

c) BASSA/CC89’s continued obstruction of an agreed settlement

And there you go again, wallowing in self-pity (“punitive”? get a grip and stop being so precious) always looking to BA to provide answers to this.

Frankly, I don’t care if you go on strike again. In fact, I’d like to see you all put your money where your mouths are. And looking at BA’s traffic figures for April, no one else seems bothered whether you strike or not either.

And if I was BA, in light of the widespread bullying by BASSA militants I would deroster any strikers for a minimum of three months after any strike action. BA seems to have enough surplus crew to lose a couple of hundred militants.
