Finnair strike threatened

25 Nov 2010 by BusinessTraveller

Finnish cabin crew union SLSY is threatening to strike next week over shift and other employment issues. If it goes ahead the strike will affect both Finnair and Blue 1 services.

The union has issued a warning to the Finnish Association of Support Service Industries that industrial action may be taken on Tuesday November 30, “if a solution is not reached before then on an employment agreement issue”.

Finnair last week said in a statement that if a strike were to take place, it would “bring most of Finnair’s flight traffic to a halt”.

According to Finnair the previous agreement with SLSY ended in April this year, and negotiations on a new agreement have been under way since February.

More details on cancellation policies should the strike take place can be seen here.
