Following misleading reports on the current position of negotiations between the Unite union and British Airways, Unite assistant general secretary Howard Beckett said:

 

“It is not correct to suggest that negotiations between Unite and British Airways have concluded.

 

“Unite remains in negotiations with British Airways in a number of different bargaining units.

 

“Even in areas where draft agreements exist, these are still subject to approval from members through a ballot.

 

"Unless and until Unite members agree to all and any proposals no settlement has been reached and it is unhelpful and misleading for British Airways to suggest otherwise.”
