Pilots Counter-Sue SAS

Published onsdag 1 mars 2006 kl 11.30

Scandinavian Airlines System pilots have gone to court here, following January’s wild strike.

The Danish newspaper  “Jyllands-Posten” writes that the pilots now plan to sue SAS in the Swedish Labor Court, for breach of contract.

They are objecting to the airline’s decision to transfer their contracts to national subsidiaries in Norway, Sweden, and Denmark.

During the three day action in January 150 Danish pilots refused to work, while around 100 Norwegian pilots called in sick. Tens of thousands of passengers were stranded, and the pilots only resumed work when the airline threatened lay-offs over the unofficial action.

SAS lost around 20 million dollars, in what the Swedish Labor Court ruled at the time was an illegal conflict.
