BALPA Press Release 

 
 
BA has met both with the  pilot reps and the BALPA General Secretary at ACAS and this evening issued the press release below.
 
Unfortunately, no progress has been made and this press release simply reaffirms BA’s position on pay, that this offer is their final offer and the issuance of a strike ballot and potentially strike dates, has not altered that position.
 
Two days of conciliation talks at ACAS  between BA and pilots union BALPA have broken down without agreement. A strike ballot among pilots closes on 22 July.
BALPA General Secretary Brian Strutton said “It is bitterly disappointing that despite two full days at ACAS we are still no further forward. BALPA tabled options for resolution but BA was not prepared to negotiate so there was no progress at all and no point continuing. Until BA changes it’s attitude there is little prospect of talks resuming.”
