you Need to fly with SAS at the end of april, be sure to keep an eye on, whether there will be a pilot to fly the plane.
Negotiations between SAS and the company's pilots on a collective agreement has broken down, and therefore have the SAS Pilot Group (SPG), which represents 95 percent of the pilots in the three scandinavian countries, announced that the pilots strikes from midnight 26. april in Denmark, Norway and Sweden.
It writes multiple media, among other Berlingske tidende, and dr.dk
SPG has previously interrupted the negotiations in Norway and Sweden, and on Monday broke the negotiations in Denmark also. SPG has given notice of conflict from 00.00 on Friday 26. april in the three nordic countries.
with a SAS plane in the course of easter, there is no reason for concern, informs the SPG in a press release.
'A rupture in the negotiations means that mediation can take place, cf. national legislation. If mediation does not succeed, will the possible conflict, which is now announced, first breaking out after easter. It means that our passengers will not be affected in påsketrafikken', writes SPG in the press release.
According to the Berlingske tidende, is the disagreement about the collaboration, predictable working hours and markedsløn, which divides the parties in the negotiations of the ad.
Particularly the distinction between work and leisure is a contentious issue in SAS-negotiations.
- the Majority of the pilots in the SAS has no control over when and how long they should work. The only thing the pilots often know about its working hours for the next month, is that they only have the free one weekend, says René Arpe, chairman of the Danish Pilotforening, in the press release.
- In the worst case, they risk having to work seven weekends in a row. This is unsustainable. To not be able to plan his / her life is a big load, and we have therefore called for greater predictability in our rotation. Unfortunately, SAS little understanding of this requirement, he says.
the Pilots are also unhappy with the SAS prior to the actions chosen 'to unilaterally remove the existing agreements on cooperation, production, career development and anciennitetssystemer', and René Arpe stresses that SAS earned 2.1 billion dollars in 2018 with these agreements.
