    What's the upside? Getting shares in the company?

    If no upside, what's the repercussion for not signing?
    I love this job

    There is no upside. Who in their right mind would sign a contract with such abusive terms. BA clearly aims to become a low pay, poor conditions employer.

    The only upside is higher pay compared to the existing agreement , but a severe cost ! Less leave , annualised hours , bank holidays paid as hours off ( but only 8 hrs irrespective of shift ! , so if you do 12 hour shifts then you work 12 hrs and get 8 hours off in lieu .....)
    The company are holding 50 interviews this week ! How many are offered or accept remains to be seen !
    B737,757,767 , A320/330/340 ........ And several bars .....

    Not a way to prepare for Brexit, when certain cheaper labour from EU may not be able to get in easily.

    Been told that AMS are being told to accept OCG if they want an LAE job ! Some are being offered the choice of new STE job or LAE on OCG ! Others offered VR !
    The company is playing hard ! The union are very quiet ! But then when have the union really helped the LAE ?

    What about choosing to leave for other employment? Is that an option or are BA the only show in town? This sounds like a game-changer for the worst, and would anyone really want to work for an organisation like this without any bitterness?

    I agree that Unions do not really represent LAEs they tend to take the path of least resistance but the employment laws of our country are biased in favour of employers unfortunately

    Once the “final salary” pension scheme (golden handcuffs) ended at Budgie Airlines then the staff had even less reason to stay. But do they have the wherewithal to move on. It’s been a long time in “Butlins” and the elder statesmen/women may not want to change company at their time of life? Or they could hang up their Speedbird badge and go off into the sunset? The latest management have had a taste of the TUI world and want to introduce outside working practices. The Union or Company are only as good as its members/staff!!!
