BA GIVES UNITE MORE TIME TO THINK OVER STRIKE ACTION

Hopes of an end to the long running British Airways cabin crew dispute have risen after union leaders held back from calling fresh strikes to allow peace talks to continue.

Members of Unite voted last month to stage fresh walkouts in their bitter row with the airline. Under employment law Unite has until this Monday to decide whether to name strike dates. But in a joint statement the two sides said that a 28-day extension had been agreed to allow for further talks.

Unite’s new leader, Len McCluskey, and BA’s new chief executive, Keith Williams, have met in recent weeks to try to reach a deal over the dispute, which led to 22 days of strikes last year, costing the airline over £150 million.
