Finnair strike over

A workers’ strike at Finland’s largest air carrier came to an end today after a new three-year agreement had been signed, ITAR TASS reports.

The strike, which started on November 30, 2010, was caused by the disagreements regarding the number of days off after a transcontinental flight between the flight attendants’ trade unions and the company’s management. Between 160 and 200 domestic and international flights had to be cancelled daily due to the strike. Some of the flights that were called off were actually bound for Yekaterinburg.

Experts estimate Finnair’s losses at about ?2m a day, ITAR TASS says.
