Denmark: SAS cabin crew wildcat

SAS aircraft

Crews at the Swedish carrier SAS AB walked out in a wildcat yesterday morning after pay and pensions talks broke down.

The walkout caused the cancellation of 92 flights and bosses threatened the 1,600 strong CAU union with fines for its members if they did not return to work. After the intervention of a union official the staff returned to work in the afternoon, apparently after an arbitrator called bosses and the union back to the negotiating table.
