BA cabin crew overwhelmingly reject company offer

Unite the union cabin crew employed at British Airways have overwhelmingly rejected the company’s offer relating to the current industrial dispute, the union announced today (Friday).

Around 81 per cent of the crew voted against the offer, in line with the union’s recommendation.  There was a turnout of 71 per cent.

Representatives of the crew will meet with Unite’s Joint General Secretaries, Derek Simpson and Tony Woodley, on Monday to discuss next moves in the dispute.

Derek Simpson and Tony Woodley said today:  “BA management should take note of their own employees’ strong rejection of their offer and immediately address the outstanding concerns.

They should make no mistake that Unite is fully committed to supporting our members in furthering this dispute if no resolution is found.”
