Strike threatens Finnair’s operations

THE Finnish Aviation Union is threatening to strike next week, likely causing severe disruptions to Finnair’s flights.

Around 3,300 members who work in the Finnish aviation industry are currently threatening a walkout on Monday, 25 October.

In a statement, flag carrier Finnair said if a strike took place it would “adversely affect Finnair’s flight operations significantly”.

The airline said it hopes Finland’s national conciliator will intervene “as soon as possible”.

The union has also kept in place an overtime ban for workers in the air transport technical services sector.

The dispute, over pay, has been steadily escalating over the last few weeks.
