Negotiations between pilots and Icelandair on a collective bargaining agreement were broken off. The International Transport Workers’ Federation stated: ‘The company has had tremendous success over the last four years, resulting in substantial executive bonuses and an excellent return on investment for shareholders’. Therefore, the Union of Icelandic Pilots FIA says it is time the workers saw some financial benefit – but Icelandair management is declining to share. Following the collapse of negotiations between the airline and the Union of Icelandic Pilots the parliament passed a legislative bill on banning a strike. According to the bill, the Union of Icelandic Pilots and Icelandair have until June 1 to reach an agreement or the matter will be placed before an industrial disputes tribunal.
