Union suspends ballot to end BA dispute

 

The union representing British Airways cabin crew has halted a ballot on an offer the airline hoped would end a year-long dispute and strikes that have cost $242.2 million.

 

Last month, the Unite union claimed it would ballot staff on the new offer from BA, which addressed one of the main remaining sticking points, the removal of travel concessions for workers who had gone on strike.

 

The union has said it would suggest staff to vote to support the deal, but it said its cabin crew reps had now changed their minds.

 

BA said when it gave the offer it believed the deal was fair and could resolve the dispute which began last November.
