Salaried Employees’ Union strike continues – air traffic also canceled on Sunday, May 27
Negotiations between the Swedish Salaried Employees’ Union/Scandinavian Cabin Crew Association and SAS/Swedish Air Transport Industry Employers’ Association have not yet led to an agreement. Accordingly, Scandinavian Airlines Sverige has been forced to also cancel Sunday’s traffic.
“I share the concern of many of our employees regarding the consequences of the Salaried Employees’ Union strike,” says Lou-Ann Wejke, head of Scandinavian Airlines Sverige’s cabin employees.
“If we cannot fly our customers where they want to go, they will opt for other airlines. For every day that the strike continues, the risk of jobs being lost rises. That is why we are now doing everything we can to bring the strike to an end. A positive sign is that the leadership of the Salaried Employees’ Union has now started to become involved in the negotiations,” says Lou-Ann Wejke.
Extent of strike by the Salaried Employees’ Union
SAS Scandinavian Airlines comprises four companies; Scandinavian Airlines Sverige, Scandinavian Airlines Danmark, Scandinavian Airlines Norge and Scandinavian Airlines International. The strike among Scandinavian Airlines Sverige’s cabin employees only affects Scandinavian Airlines Sverige’s flights. The strike does not affect flights operated by the other airlines.
