Danish Minister "broke rules" by texting SAS union

Denmark’s Finance Minister Bjarne Corydon sent an SMS to the cabin attendants union CAU, encouraging them to agree to the Scandinavian Airlines pay-cutting package, reports Danish news agency Ritzau.

The text message was sent Monday morning when CAU was the only SAS union which had not yet signed on to the agreement.

According to the leader of the opposition Danish People’s Party, Kristian Thulesen Dahl, in sending the text message the finance minister broke the rules for the operations of publicly owned companies.

Meanwhile, the Swedish government has sent its legislation on loans for SAS to parliament, where a vote is scheduled for December 12th.

SAS is majority owned by the Swedish, Danish and Norwegian states.
