A strike by SAS Ground Handling at the Copenhagen Airport has now been called off.
TV2 News reports that the striking workers have returned to the job after a nearly three hour strike that caused at least two cancellations, delayed at least a dozen other flights and left passengers fuming.
A SAS spokesperson said that the striking workers would meet with management officials on Friday to continue negotiations over working hours and salary. According to Ritzau, the strike was a result of SAS leadership laying off 900 baggage handlers in order to force new negotiations on a local level.
SAS spokesperson said that move was a result of the airline's recently-posted quarterly results in which "earnings did not look too good".
"We have carried out some efficiency improvements at SAS including, among other things, a rescheduling of working hours," SAS's head of communications, Trine Kromann-Mikkelsen told Ritzau.
