Thomas Cook and BALPA have agreed to enter binding arbitration to end the dispute between the company and its pilots over pay.
As a result the strike proposed for this Friday, and the three-day strike from 12th October and four-day strike from 19th October, have been called off.
The pilots have already held one 12-hour and one 24-hour strikes after the company failed to put forward an acceptable offer and nine days of ACAS talks proved fruitless, with both sides locked in a stalemate.
BALPA General Secretary, Brian Strutton, said:
“Our members voted to end this dispute by binding arbitration, which Thomas Cook has now agreed to.
“I am pleased that we have been able to find a peaceful way of resolving the pilots’ pay dispute without further disruption to passengers.”
