It seems that hopes of a settlement of the, seemingly never ending, dispute between Unite and BA have proven to be a tad premature.
Unite, apparently, is not a united as its name would suggest. Bassa, the branch covering BA cabin crew within Unite, is refusing to back the current offer.
Whilst Bassa will under the Unite ballot ask for its members to vote, it will not recommend the offer to them.
Unite, on the other hand, is backing the deal and will write to both Unite and Bassa members recommending it.
Unless Unite and Bassa sort out their internal disagreements it is likely that this dispute will continue.
