Strike endsYesterday afternoon, Croatia Airlines announced that it had struck a deal with its cabin crew which will see the resumption of all services today after a 48 hour strike, initially planned to take place over four days. Negotiations between the opposing sides were mediated by the Government of Croatia, the owner of the national carrier. A collective agreement has been signed and the union of Croatia Airlines cabin crew has declared victory over the management. Ivan Mišetić, the CEO of the airline, said that he is happy with the new agreement but warns that irreversible damage has been inflicted onto airline’s finances, the Croatian economy and Croatian tourism, as a result of the strike. The cabin crew union did not wish to elaborate on the fine print of their new agreement.
