The Icelandic Cabin Crew Association and Icelandair signed a new wage agreement yesterday evening and so the strike flight attendants had planned to start on October 10 has been postponed. The Iceland Airwaves music festival will hence not be affected.
The strike was called for after the last wage agreement was rejected in a vote among the association’s members. Now the new agreement is to be put to a vote and in case it too is rejected, a strike among the airline’s cabin crew is scheduled to take place on October 24, ruv.is reports.
Chairperson of the Icelandic Cabin Crew Association and its negotiation committee Sigrún Jónsdóttir said the agreement has undergone considerable changes compared to the former. She is content and hopes her fellow association members will be too. The agreement will be presented to them next week.
In other Iceland Airwaves news, a “Thursday Foreplay” will be held to warm up for the festival, which kicks off next week, at Hitt Húsid on Pósthússtraeti 3-5 in downtown Reykjavík tonight; We Made God and Silent Roar will play in a free concert starting at 9 pm.
