"SAS-conflict deepens – pilots, world's head of negotiations"
"trench warfare around the SAS-the strike continues."
"the Pilots dismiss is now fully the company's Swedish förhandlingsledare Torbjörn Granevärn from the Swedish aviation industry and would like to continue the negotiations in Norway."
"– My advice to Torbjörn Granevärn to take a break for a few days and do something else. He interferes with the process, " says Wilhelm Tersmeden from the Swedish pilotförening."
"the SAS asked on Sunday, once again, into thousands of new flights – and at Tuesday's end, a total of 280 000 passengers have had their flights cancelled."
"According to the forecasters, so bleeds the company millions of dollars each hour."
"the Situation has over the weekend been very messy – stranded travelers have testified to the great difficulty to reach the airline, and among the SAS booking staff have the situation according to information provided to Aftonbladet been chaotic."
"And at the same time as the two parties over the weekend not had any contact, it seems, ongoing trench warfare become all the more infected."
"On Sunday afternoons called the Carriers' press office around to the media with a move targeted directly to the pilots and their colleagues in the SAS."
"– SAS simply cannot meet the pilots 'extreme demands, given that it will jeopardize the company's future and job security for all of the more than 10 000 employees in the SAS group," says förhandlingschefen in the Swedish aviation industry group Torbjörn Granevärn and add:"
" Pilots are an important and professional legal profession which is accustomed to take responsibility. Therefore, I would like to see that they take some responsibility in this situation also."
"But the trade union the Swedish pilotförening dismisses employers' association Swedish flygbranschenu002FTransportföretagen as you mean is not even a partner. Instead, it wants the pilots to resume negotiations in Norway that pilotfacken in Sweden, Norway and Denmark come together around an agreement."
"– the Whole negotiation with the SAS have been in Norway in the Norwegian medlingssystemet where the confederation of Swedish enterprise and the Carriers have not participated. It medlarbud presented in Sweden that we rejected was a slarvligt skambud which included direct errors and it was not based on the discussions and negotiations that have been in Norway, " says Wilhelm Tersmeden, chairman of the SAS section of the Swedish pilotförening."
"He is very critical of Torbjörn Granevärn which the employer's head of negotiations in Sweden."
"– My advice to Torbjörn Granevärn to take a break for a few days and do something else. He disrupts the whole process and have no insight into what's been said between the parties during the hearing in Norway. My assessment is that if there would be a contact, so it is where it continues. To rewind the tape and start over in Sweden is completely unreasonable, " says Wilhelm Tersmeden."
"at the same time as the conflict between the parties is raging, the debate has been hot on the net if pilotstrejken. Sponsored post appeared on Facebook where it is up against the pilots."
"One of the sponsored pages is called ”SAS-pilots shall fly - does not strike”. Among the hundreds of comments spread hatred against the pilots called ”spoiled” and ”insolent” ”fattigpiloter”."
"– this is pure propaganda to get the public turn against the pilots, " says Wilhelm Tersmeden."
"”Shows how to look at us”"
"He is also critical of the Carriers, ”planted a false indication” that the pilots on average would earn 93 000 per month, and conducted advocacy in order to turn the public against the pilots."
"– That SAS allows this kind of behaviour proves which förhandlingsklimat we have found ourselves in, what arrogance you have towards the pilots and how to look at us, " says Wilhelm Tersmeden."
"Ella Granevärn deny that the Swedish aviation industry group, which is part of the association of Swedish enterprise, lobbying to influence public opinion. "
" No, but we see that it is important for the company to clearly go out and and clearly describe what it is about. There we see a value of, " says Torbjörn Granevärn."
