BA cabin crew reject latest offer

British Airways’ cabin crew has rejected the airline’s latest offer to settle the on-going dispute, according to Unite. A strike ballot was postponed last month when the airline proposed a new deal but 67% of Unite’s members have voted against accepting the offer, which included two years of guaranteed rises in basic salary from February 2011 and annual pay increases. “There are no cuts in pay and our current Heathrow crew remain the best rewarded in the UK airline industry,” the airline said. “We would urge them to come back to the table to sign the agreement and end the dispute.” The loss of travel concessions and dismissal of staff is still plaguing the row, which is now set to include further strikes. Cabin crew took 22 days of industrial action throughout May and June. BA CEO Willie Walsh has previously said the airline would fly 100% of operations if other strikes are to occur.
