SAS Strike Continues
With no end in the sight to the Scandinavian Airlines System cabin crew strike, the airline has decided to cancel flights to, from and within Sweden on Tuesday, making it the fifth day in a row.
Some 800 crew members walked off the job on Friday, after negotiators failed to reach an agreement over working conditions linked to the airline’s offer of a 10.2 per cent pay rise over 3 years.
On Monday 272 flights which would have carried 20,000 passengers were grounded.
From Monday morning, SAS introduced the lockout they had threatened, but the Salaried Employees’ Union and the airline have been meeting with mediators separately after talks broke down on Sunday morning.
