We have received no notification of any ballot for industrial action. Unite’s crew branch BASSA has been talking about a ballot for the last three months. It does not have the authority to call a ballot.”Should the vote for further industrial action go through, BA’s Christmas operations could be severely disrupted causing headaches for the airline’s passengers.The news comes as BA chief executive Willie Walsh has outlined his plans to significantly expand the airline’s footprint.Walsh has already drawn up a shortlist of 12 possible airlines BA could merge with once the American Airlines and Iberia tie-ups are complete.BA also signed a codesharing agreement with India’s Kingfisher Airlines to share flights between the UK, Europe, India and Sri Lanka.
