Solidarity strike may stop flight buses


Linda Genborg 2012-04-23

UPDATE 11:50 am Tuesday: the strike has been cancelled as the parties reached an agreement on Monday. 

The buses to and from Landvetter and Göteborg City airports may be cancelled this afternoon due to a solidarity strike. The strike is expected to commence at 2pm on Monday afternoon and will affect bus traffic to and from six airports in Sweden. 

The solidarity strike is to support the bus drivers’ fellow union members in the personal assistance care sector, who can’t negotiate their collective agreements.

In addition to Landvetter and Göteborg City airport, the airports in Arlanda, Bromma, Malmö and Västerås will also be affected by the cancelled buses.
