Finland - Finnish pilots' union to enforce training ban - October 20, 2009

On 20 October, the Finnish Airline Pilots' Association decided it would impose a training ban on Finnair in two weeks' time. The union said Finnair pilots would refuse to train other carriers' pilots in protest against Finnair's plans to outsource some domestic and European short-haul flights. A pay and conditions agreement covering Finnair pilots expired more than a year ago, but talks on a new one stalled over the outsourcing plans.
