The Association of Support Service Industries (PALTA) and the Finnish Air Line Pilots’ Association (SLL) have reached a new collective labor agreement for Finnair’s pilots. The new collective labor agreement comes into effect on February 1st, 2014 and it is in line with the central Pact for Employment and Growth. The three-year contract includes a crisis clause similar to the ones in the collective labor agreements which were reached with other employee unions this fall. According to the crisis clause, in the coming months Finnair will negotiate with SLL on cost savings. If an agreement on the savings is reached by June 13, 2014, Finnair will offer pilots job security for two years.
