Swedish SAS pilots inching closer to striking

Rejection by pilots of latest offer could result in work stopping this evening

“Unless the parties agree on a new collective agreement, SPF members employed by SAS who fly short routes and are based in Arlanda will stop all work on Friday, June 10 at 6 pm.”
