The BA cabin crew dispute returned to the High Court yesterday. Sir Christopher Holland will adjudicate whether there should be a permanent injunction preventing BA from imposing cost-cutting proposals.
Unite union national officer for civil aviation Steve Turner said: "This court case is about a matter of huge importance to workers everywhere. It's about whether an employer can, without due notice or negotiation, systematically change the long-standing contracts of employment of its workforce.
"It's our view that the moment BA imposed new terms on cabin crew, the law was broken.
"Management by imposition will ruin BA. It has forced us to the High Court and it has caused a ballot of cabin crew determined to protect their jobs.
"BA must think again - negotiate, stop attacking a prized asset in your cabin crew, and bring your workforce with you."
