Reply To: BA and union agree to end dispute

Back to Forum


Um… I don’t think the BASSA accounts will be forthcoming. One of the benefits for Unite coming out of this dispute is that the proposed disbandment of BASSA and CC89 to be replaced by a single branch means that the lack of accounts for the soon to be defunct groups gets swept under the carpet. Unite also manage to do away with the somewhat dodgy constitution that certainly BASSA had.

In reality, I suspect that this outcome is what BA really wanted following the 2007 dispute, where Tony Woodley ‘imposed’ a settlement on the BASSA branch. Maybe a new branch will be less dysfunctional – certainly, it could be no worse than its predecessors.
