Who will crack first in the British Airways strike saga?

As we face up to a sixth day of action in the British Airways strike saga there are signs that both parties are losing the will to continue and more speculation that we will see British Airways management and the Unite union around the negotiating table this week. Despite public assertions from both parties that they will continue with their current strategies, there is no doubt that damage is being done on both sides.

It may take the UK government to publicly bring the warring parties together because then each party would be able to save face and blame the other for giving in. The truth is, and has been for some time, that the unions and the British Airways management fully realise that changes need to be made within the company and some middle ground needs to be found in the short term. If the strike was to continue indefinitely there is real danger that British Airways would suffer significant loss of reputation and business in the medium to longer term not to mention the impact this would have upon company finances.

What better way for the UK government to announce the UK election than bringing the warring British Airways management and Unite union together and brokering an agreement?
