Finland - flight attendants' strike
Wednesday 17, November 2010
Finnish flight attendants' association (SLSY) threatens to begin strike on 30 November 2010.
The Finnish Flight Attendants' Association (SLSY), which represents Finnair's and Blue1's cabin service personnel, has submitted to the Association of Support Service Industries a warning that industrial action may begin in the form of a strike on Tuesday, 30 November 2010 if a solution is not reached before then on an employment agreement issue. If it were to take place, the strike would bring most of Finnair's flight traffic to a halt.
The SLSY's previous collective agreement ended in April this year and negotiations on a new agreement have been under way since February. Finnair employs around 2,000 flight attendants.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
