Scandinavian Airlines announced that following constructive negotiations with Norwegian cabin crew unions NKF and SNK, agreements have been reached on new collective agreements valid for two years.
“We have now reached a solution that the parties are agreed on. We have had a constructive dialog with both NKF and SNK and have also created a platform for our future cooperatio”, said Eivind Bjurström, Head of Crew Development and Resource Planning at SAS.
SAS is also currently holding collective negotiations with the pilots’ unions in Sweden and Norway. The negotiations process was scheduled to be completed this week, but the parties need more time and the process has been extended.
