Iberia cabin crew and ground staff hold fourth day of stoppages

IBERIA continued today with their fourth day of stoppages. Public Works Minister Ana Pastor announced today that the management of Iberia and labour union representatives had agreed to invite Gregorio Tudela professor of private, social and economic law at Madrid’s Autónoma University (UAM) to act as an arbitrator to help resolve their dispute over planned layoffs.

Some 280 flights were cancelled today, including 87 by Iberia, 19 by its low-cost carrier Iberia Express, 95 by Air Nostrum and 79 by Vueling. Further strikes are planned in the period March 4-8 and March 18-22, which the pilots’ union Sepla plans to join. Sepla representatives are due to meet with the management later today.
