Swedish Ferry Boat Strike Cancelled

A threatened ferry boat strike that would have paralyzed Easter holiday traffic has been withdrawn.

The employers have withdrawn their threat to rip up the present pension plan for boat employers in retaliation for the workers rejecting a mediation offer.

The strike would have cut all Swedish ferry service to foreign ports as well as to the Baltic island of Gotland.
