SAS-workers sue their union

Hundreds of cabin crew workers at Scandinavian Airlines, SAS, are suing their labour union, Unionen. They say that the union signed off pension money in the savings package that was issued last year, newspaper Dagens Nyheter reports.

The union's chief legal officer, Martin Wästfelt, admits that their deal may have put some of their members on the spot, but adds that "it was either keeping our members' salaries and jobs, or making some adjustments to their pensions".

Wästfelt says that the decision had both legal support and support from union members at the time.
