T&G considers new offer from BA in pay dispute

The
Transport and General Workers’ Union (T&G) says it is considering a new
offer from BA tabled at talks between the company and unions today.

The
T&G, the largest union at British Airways, is balloting its 8,325 check-in
staff and baggage handlers for industrial action, and the result will be
announced later this week.

Brendan
Gold, T&G national secretary for civil aviation and lead negotiator for the
T&G, said: "We’re pleased that the company has put forward a new offer
to the unions. However, the content will need to be considered by the
bargaining groups for ground support staff and check-in workers.

 "We plan to meet with those groups today
and tomorrow morning,” he said. "The company are moving in the right
direction, but the new money on the table is linked to certain conditions, so
we will need to consider how we can now move forward.”
