3rd July will be safe due to the times required for (a) giving 7 days notice of the ballot (b) the time taken for the ballot to physically occur - 14 days due to the nature of BAs business (c) the notice period for actual strike action to take place (7 days)

Those 3 amount to 4 weeks minimum in total. Even then actual strike action does not have to take place immediately. Remember they are wanting to use the threat of a ballot to get BA to improve the offer and a threat of a strike can often do that.
