Latest: BA strikes off after court ruling

17 May 2010

Bitterwallet - British Airways The British Airways cabin staff who were due to begin striking at midnight tonight will have to put away their braziers and banners and get ready to put a shift of work in tomorrow after the strike was put on hold.

BA took out an injunction against the Unite union over whether it correctly followed the rules regarding contacting its members with strike result details. Unite have said they will appeal against the decision.

All of which means that the passengers are dicked around yet again. Only the ash cloud can stop you now...

    Good to know Henry. Why don't Unite try hiring lawyers to check they've got everything in place? I've no love for BA, but Unite are coming out of this looking like a bunch of twats.

    I cancelled my unite membership and joined the AA.Now if I have trouble with the boss a patrolman turns up within the hour and threatens them with his 'spanner'. Far more effective than the shower of shite that was Unite..and cheaper

    I'm sure if we weren't at the tail end of the recession the strikes would probably be going ahead. I think the judges are trying to stop the air cabin crew shooting themselves in the foot. How long can BA put up with this childish behaviour?

    Unites Leader, has just come back from Cuba where he was addressing a rally, so the talks and legal action have been held up a bit until his return.

    Sensible people book with other airlines. Even though the strike is temporarily off, the threat of strikes in the future does almost as much damage.
