Norway -End of Norwegian pilots’ strike after 11 days -March 11, 2015

After marathon talks, the ten-day pilots' strike grounding Norwegian's Scandinavian flights has been resolved with concessions for secure jobs.

The ten-day pilots' strike which has seen nearly all of budget airline Norwegian's Scandinavian flights grounded has been resolved. Norwegian, Europe's third-largest budget airline, and the trade unions struck a deal that secures the jobs of the airline's Scandinavian pilots until October 2017. In return, the pilots made concessions on wages and pensions. After marathon talks that ended earlier this month without a deal reached a representative of the pilots’ union had already stated that the unions and the airline agreed to focus on resolving the conflict rather than arguing in the media.
