And there seems to be a history of threatening behaviour in BASSA:

“The highest-paid union official in Britain, sacked from his job with British Airways after allegedly attacking another official, is considering launching an appeal against the airline’s decision.

“Mike Coleman, who was earning more than pounds 100,000 from his BA job and as head of British Airlines Stewards and Stewardesses Association (Bassa 2000), is said to have assaulted and spat at Dave Fallon, an official of Cabin Crew ’89, a small union which represents mainly long-haul staff.

The allegations were substantiated by an internal BA hearing. A final appeal, to a director of the airline, then upheld the decision to sack him last week.”
