Unite urges BA crew to back pay agreement

British Airways cabin crew have started voting on a deal to end their long-running dispute with the airline.

Unite is backing an agreement to end the row which has soured relations at BA for the past 18 months. The deal will see travel perks for crew (cut during last year's strike) returned to 6,700 union members and third-party arbitration for crew on disciplinary charges. It will also give cabin crew a two-year pay deal.
