British Airways and Unite develop new proposals

British Airways and union Unite have reportedly developed new proposals that could end a long-running industrial dispute involving the airline's cabin crew (The Guardian, 18-Oct-2010). Unite's main cabin crew branch BASSA stated: "We do now have details of the offer and also a reasonable understanding of its detail; as you would expect, it contains both good and bad. Some points have legal implications and so require additional legal opinion; we need to secure that as quickly as possible. We must all carefully decide our next step."
