The state mediator told negotiations were concluded and a new wage contract was signed at half past eight last night.

Jón Einarsson, the chairman of the negotiating committee representing the Icelandic Airline Pilots Association, told, “they were happy with the new wage contract.”

Icelandair pilots were not happy with a clause in the previous wage contract rejected by a 51 percent majority vote on July 11; the clause concerned a pilots’ job security.

Einarsson told pilots had reached an agreement on the job security clause; no other changes were made in the wage contract; the new wage contract will be voted on for the next seven days.

The overtime ban that came into effect at 2 pm yesterday afternoon has been called off.
