Normal flight operations on FridayA strike by Croatia Airlines’ cabin crew has been cancelled after the airline’s management and cabin crew union came to a decision late on Wednesday evening after talks which lasted 12 hours. Thus, all flights will operate by their usual schedule on Friday when the strike was expected to begin. The two sides agree that they will commence new negotiations regarding the modification of the collective work agreement. Croatia Airlines’ management initially planned to introduce a 10% pay cut, a 30% per diem decrease and the loss of other benefits such as meals, annual bonuses and solidarity bonuses. The new terms will be known after talks between the 2 sides resume although the president of Croatia Airlines’ cabin crew union said that the two sides compromised and met half way.
The news will be welcomed by Croatia Airlines’ passengers. The Croatia Airlines cabin crew union said it was forced to go on strike due to unacceptable behaviour on the part of Croatia Airlines’ management.
