Strike: – I have a hope

Strike: - I have a hope

– SAS’ chief negotiator Marianne Hearns told TV 2 while leaving Næringslivets hus in Stockholm for a break on Sunday morning, you notice you haven’t slept for a long time.

SAS and pilot unions have been negotiating together since 10am on Saturday.

– We are working tonight and we will continue, says Roger Cloxet, president of the Norwegian SAS Pilots Association.

– We end up doing what we usually do

He did not dare to promise that an agreement would be reached on Sunday.

– We don’t have an agreement until we have a contract, Cloxett says.

Hearns, however, points out that negotiations have progressed.

– In the end we do what we usually do, you reserve the various elements and then leave the hardest for you. We’ll leave it where we disagree, Herness tells TV2.

Hernes did not want to suggest that an agreement would be reached on Sunday.

– I have a hope, but you never know what the outcome will be.

– Rest if possible

The fact that the parties are tired of negotiating through the night can certainly come into play when it comes to such complex negotiations.

– It’s a challenge, that’s all. It is a very complicated mediation, so it goes a little bit slower. Fortunately, there are a lot of us and we get some rest when we can, Cloxet tells TV 2.

The pilot strike began on Monday, July 4 and is now in its 13th day. So far, SAS has spent NOK 100–130 million per day, according to the company’s own statistics.

In total, 2,100 flights were canceled in Norway alone. On Saturday, 133 departures will be canceled as a result of the strike. So far 154 flights have been canceled on Sunday.
