Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) pilots strike for a week, affecting 380,000 passengers, the company said today that it has reached an agreement with the union.
Reuters reported that Scandinavian Airlines Chief Executive Rickard Gustafson said the company and the union reached a consensus that some of the newly proposed three-year mutual agreement agreed to raise the salary of the 2019 salary by 3.5%.
The Scandinavian pilots started a strike on the 26th of last month due to requests for improved pay and working conditions. As of today, more than 4,000 flights have been cancelled.
Gustavsson said at a press conference later today: “I can safely inform our passengers and employees that this dispute has been resolved. We signed a new mutual agreement with the pilots of the four companies tonight.”
Agence France-Presse reported that Gusta Taffson also hopes to resume normal operations as soon as possible, but also said that it will take at least 24 hours to properly arrange.
