ACAS move to end British Airways dispute

The conciliation service ACAS is today set to issue a number of new proposals which could hopefully see an end to the British Airways dispute with Unite union. At this moment in time the proposals from the conciliation service will remain confidential but meetings with the two parties have been scheduled for this week. As a consequence of difficulties experienced at the last meeting between the two parties the location and timing of these meetings will remain strictly private and confidential.

While the introduction of ACAS to the mix is certainly a move in the right direction it is unclear as to what new proposals may be put forward. However, one thing is certain, the future British Airways is at risk the longer the dispute continues because passengers are looking elsewhere for their travel arrangements and it may be difficult to bring them back into the fold in the future. When you consider all of the other issues surrounding British Airways, including the price of fuel, competition in the sector and the need to cut costs, the dispute with the Unite union is the last thing the company needs.

However, we have been here on numerous occasions and nobody is holding their breath for a long-term solution to what is becoming a long-term problem!
