Airline SAS, unions work to avoid more strikes

20 August 2007

Scandinavian airline SAS said on Friday it had buried the hatchet with its Danish unions and that four organisations had pledged to work for a “‘no-strike situation'” after 2007 wage negotiations.

The carrier, hard hit by fierce competition from low-cost carriers and higher fuel costs in recent years, has had hundreds of flights grounded this year at a cost of millions of dollars due to strikes at its Danish and Swedish units.

SAS Chief Executive Mats Jansson said the airline should be able avoid new strikes through initiatives including profit-sharing programmes and share-ownership programmes.
