The strike that was threatening to disrupt air traffic on 7 and 8 May has been postponed. Service Sector Employers PALTA and the Finnish Aviation Union (IAU) agreed on postponing the strike at the request of the mediator. The new dates are 19 and 20 May.

Service Sector Employers PALTA considers the sympathy strike that the IAU intends to organise later in the week to be illegal and has filed a claim with the Labour Court of Finland. The court is expected to pass its resolution during the week.

PALTA considers postponing the strike to be the appropriate solution at this point.
