Icelandair cabin crew: No overtime

Icelandair logoIcelandair's cabin crew have agreed to show solidarity with the airline's pilots by refusing to work overtime. According to a news report from Reykjavik, members of the Icelandic Cabin Crew Association (FFÍ) met on September 10th to discuss the issue.

“There is a great solidarity within the group,” head of FFÍ Sigrún Jónsdóttir told Morgunbladid, adding there had been a good atmosphere during yesterday’s meeting. About 160 of 605 cabin crew workers listed at Icelandair attended the meeting.

Jónsdóttir said FFÍ members had discussed possible counter measurements with Icelandair’s board for those who have not been made redundant, like being offered a vacation, paid or unpaid, or reduced working hours between December and March.
Some Icelandair flights were canceled earlier this week because of the wage dispute between the pilots and the airline management.
