British Airways Hails New Talks

28th Jul 2003

British Airways chief executive Rod Eddington has emerged from the first in a series of meetings with union chiefs aimed at avoiding damaging strike action.
Mr Eddington shook hands with GMB general secretary Kevin Curran, following a brief half hour meeting earlier on Monday.
Both men said they wanted to see a resolution to the dispute, which threatens a summer of chaos at Britain`s airports.
Mr Eddington has said the future of the airline could rest on the outcome.
“They were very sensible and constructive discussions,” said Mr Eddington.
