The Icelandic Airline Pilots Association (FIA) reached an agreement with Icelandair management over a new collective agreement. The agreement came about after a bitter dispute involving strikes and narrowly avoided complaints to the ILO, as reported in the May and June 2014 newsletters. At the time, trade unions demanded to share in the growth the airline had experienced over the last years, which had already paid off in substantial executive bonuses. The strike was banned in court and the dispute forced into mediation. After lengthy talks, the parties have now reached an agreement that will be valid for three years.
