Norway -First ever strike threat at Norwegian Air -March 02, 2015

After state mediation between the management of Norwegian Air and the pilots trade unions broke down a strike started.

After state mediation between the management of Norwegian Air and the pilots trade unions broke down a strike started. Management claimed they would keep flights running with pilots hired in from other airline subsidiaries, but the union claimed that this would amount to strike-busting. The dispute started with management efforts to cut pilots’ pensions, pay, benefits and insurance costs. This caused months of labour tension and negotiations that stranded, leading to the mandatory arbitration.
