Icelandic Government to Submit Bill Banning Pilots Strike

The Icelandic government agreed at a meeting at 1 pm to submit a legislative bill to parliament to stop the strike by Icelandair pilots following the collapse of negotiations between Icelandair and the Union of Icelandic Pilots at midday, ruv.is reports.

It is unclear exactly when the bill will be put forward for deliberation.

The pilots plan to strike again on Friday from 6 am to 6 pm.

As reported yesterday, Icelandair has announced that the strike by the airline’s pilots could cost the company at least ISK 1.5-1.7 billion (USD 13.3-15 million, EUR 9.6 million-11 million).
