Finnish aviation strike cancelled

The Finnish Aviation Union has withdrawn a strike threat that was set to bring disruption to cargo operations in the country later this week.
The union had warned that its members would be taking part in a strike on May 19 and 20 in connection with a dispute over a collective labour agreement applied to a Finnish ground handling company.
However, it has now withdrawn the threat.
“We are happy to see that the negotiating parties have reached an agreement in this dispute, which Finnair was not involved in,” said Finnair chief operating officer Ville Iho.
