Finland -Aviation strike averted twice -November 18, 2013

Following difficult negotiations that left Finnair outside of the national wage agreement reached last month, management, the Finnish Flight Attendants Association (SLSY) and the Finnish Aviation Union (IAU) reached an agreement over pay and working conditions. Only hours after the agreement was signed, however, another strike already loomed for Finnair. Members of SLSY and IAU announced they were prepared to join a solidarity strike for their catering colleagues, who had not yet reached an agreement with subcontractor LSG Sky Chefs. LSG Sky Chefs and catering staff unions were still in a major dispute over pay and working conditions, due to the company’s attempts to move its workers out of the aviation workers’ collective agreement. With the help of a national conciliator, the two parties reached an agreement on the eve of yet another Finnair strike.
