Company Watch - British Airways AirGuide Business read online review & book description:

New York (AirGuideBusiness - Company Watch) Jan 24, 2010 The Unite union announced a new strike ballot earlier this week, which raised fears of disruption during Easter. Unite's Len McCluskey said no action would occur over Easter as he wanted "families to be able to plan their travel arrangements in confidence". But BA said the union statement would be "of little comfort" to travellers as strikes could still start from March 1. "The union has given up the biggest weapon it had in its armoury to force BA to change course," said the BBC's employment correspondent, Martin Shankleman, who believes the announcement raises hopes there could be a negotiated settlement. A 12-day strike that had been planned over Christmas was halted after the High Court said it was illegal following concerns about how the ballot had been organised. The new strike ballot among cabin crew will open on 25 January and conclude on 22 February. British Airways shares closed up 0.9 percent or 1.8 pence to 202.2p, on a day that most FTSE 100 shares fell. In a statement on Monday, British Airways accused Unite of making proposals that would result in a large increase in costs and sent a letter to staff asking for volunteers to train as replacement cabin crew during any strike.
