‘Intimidation’

To quote from the latest BBC report on the BA strike,

“Derek Simpson, joint leader of Unite, has accused BA's management of being in an "intimidating" way.

"There is an agreement on the table," he said.

"It is not particularly brilliant but it could be workable - although it needs selling and crew need persuading to accept it.

"We would try to do that, but it is very difficult when an atmosphere of intimidation and fear persists."”

Let’s see whether Mr Simpson puts his money where his mouth is this time, rather than doing the opposite and urging crews to reject the deal.  Given that one of my biggest complaints is Unite’s dishonesty, I’m not holding my breath.
