    Yes there was the pension being stamped on but as nobody seemed to care much...
    Really? There will be a ballot later this month. People are losing hundreds of thousands of pounds in pension FFS!!


    This is not a restructuring, its a pay adjustment. Once the pension issue is sorted, a collective agreement on pay may allow an adjustment to the total remuneration package. BA will then be free to recruit at the 'required' grade that matches industry standards.

    Or not.................................

    If its going to be a pay adjustment I cant imagine them paying any of the new FMAs any lower. Maybe a reshuffle of the budget, mechs lower, LAEs higher, LMA-??.

    What the Hells going on at BA .No spares not enough staff and no actual planning , and all the managers are doing is moving the useless managers from one spot to another as if that's going to fix anything , we seem to have inherited some cretins at the top table as things have gone from bad to worse as far as engineering is concerned . I don't see any extra money coming in as the man at the top is cutting back on everything and that's why we are losing more certifying staff and don't forget we need the right kind of engineer not just the ones that can pass exams .

    I second that statement Chimaera.

    The older staff are retiring early because they have lost all faith and are sick of the endless management games, the younger are going because they see no future andonce the pension goes those in the middle will leave to take up better offers.

    All too many of the new licence holders are 'academic engineers' with little or no experience and many lacking the basic knowledge and skills that a licence holder should have. And these will be the people that BA engineering will increasingly have to rely on. Heaven help a once great company brought low by poor management.
    Er,I never touched it - it came off in me hand

    Why do you think it was better back in the day? I would say nostalgia and ignoring that the subject matter is far deeper and broader today. You have to know old tech still, plus new tech.
