Union Says British Airways ballot goes ahead - cabin crew do not accept new contracts willingly

Unite union, representing the majority of British Airways’ (BA) 14,000 cabin crew, confirmed its intention to conduct a strike vote on 14-Dec-2009 despite a UK High Court ruling that its dispute with BA must go to a full trial on 01-Feb-2010 (Guardian, 05-Nov-2009). The union will “unwillingly” accept changes which will reduce cabin crew from 15 to 14 on long-haul services by removing a senior purser. The union failed to obtain a court order blocking the decision. [more - Unite]
