Unite prepared to return to industrial action against British Airways

Unite, representing cabin crew at British Airways, stated its members are prepared to renew industrial action over the carrier’s refusal to return travel perks to cabin crew that conducted a strike earlier this year and its use of arbitrators in disciplinary procedures (Guardian, 30-Aug-2010). Unite plans to meet with British Airways in early Sep-2010 to resolve the disputes. British Airways has not countenanced revoking its decision to reduce crewing levels on flights.
