Total of 24 days of strikes up to May 28 are called off
Iberia says that pilots at the airline have called off a series of strikes. The action had protested against the start-up of a low-cost airline, but [the pilots] have accepted the proposal to have a mediator,” an Iberia spokeswoman said. The pilots had previously announced a total of 24 separate days of strikes to take place between March 16 and May 28, concerned that thousands of jobs could be axed once the short-haul Iberia Express is launched.
Twelve days of strikes have already been carried out, forcing Iberia to cancel 1,400 flights at a cost of €36 million.
