A pilot strike can affect up to 23,000 passengers.

Pilot Strike Announced for Wednesday

Updated 7:00 PM

At least 23,000 air travellers will be affected by a pilot strike Wednesday. News agency TT reports that 230 regional flight departures have been cancelled. As many as 2,000 Swedish pilots may go on strike tomorrow, the result of stalled labor negotiations.

Among other sticking points, a Swedish pilot's union has taken issue with an airline that has laid off full-time employees and is now looking to give work to freelance pilots who would not have the same worker's rights.
