BA union to reballot over strike

The biggest union representing British Airways cabin crew said yesterday it will re-ballot members over strike action saying it feared a recent vote may be invalid. Cabin crew voted last month to hold further strikes in the long-running dispute which has already cost BA £150m. But, BA argued that the ballot, the third held by staff backing industrial action, was unlawful. That led the Electoral Reform Society, the watchdog responsible for overseeing the vote, to qualify its official report, the union said.
