Danish and Norwegian workers of low-cost air carrier have been in conflict with management since the company announced it intends to transfer its cabin crew to new holding company subsidiaries in a move that workers fear will affect their wages, working conditions and pensions. Norwegian workers called a strike after the mandatory arbitration failed, but only pulled one flight attendant off the job while they waited for their Danish colleagues to call for strike too. In the strike, almost all Norwegian Air flights departing from Norway and Denmark were expected to be grounded and 1,300 Norwegian flight attendants to walk off the job; only flights to Bangkok and the US would run as scheduled, since these are already staffed by non-unionised Asian crews. On the eve of the strike, however, management and unions reached an agreement in which rights and contracts of the crew remain the same as the past four years.
