British Airways has made a new offer to Unite in an effort to end the strike. Whilst Unite is “allowing” its members to consider the offer, it will recommend against them accepting the offer as it refuses fully reinstate the travel perks that were removed in an earlier strike.
Changes includes top up payments and basic rises for the next two years.
Mr Tony “Visits Cuba and Cyprus during critical phases ” Woodly describes the offer as “interesting” and has to put the offer to the membership (and if they didn’t, there would be explaining to do).
But he also comments
“As a consequence of the company’s last and final offer the union and its representatives will have no choice but to delay our vote in order to allow our members to consult on the offer.”
British Airways is happy for the break of the strike ballot, hoping to end the dispute, but as they say – we’ll see what happen. Will the cabin crew choose to stop, or will they continue and alienate more of the staff who worked through the strike and more importantly – the travelling pubic?
