Cabin crew reject management offer

Cabin crew have voted by a comfortable majority to reject the latest offer from British Airways management. Unite, which represents 90% of BA’s 12,000 cabin crew announced that 67% had rejected the deal.

The Guardian reports the result has come as a shock to “BA watchers”. We can only conclude that these watchers have not being paying attention over the last few months.

The offer itself was a poor one as the Socialist Party has outlined before. Among other weaknesses it left the issue of the “New Fleet” unresolved and failed to restore the staff travel discount to cabin crew who had taken strike action. Cabin crew have shown time and again they are willing to take action to defend their terms and conditions despite the ferocious pressure from management.

All eyes will now turn to the ballot for strike action.
