Strike cancellation is the first step to resolve disagreements via negotiation rather than confrontation

Dialogue and negotiation are the reasonable ways to resolve the company's problems

Madrid, December 10, 2012

For Iberia, “calling off the strike can and should be a first step along the necessary path of dialogue and negotiation, which is the sole reasonable way to resolve the company’s problems without harming customers.”

The unions decided to call off the strike after meeting with Iberia Management today under the auspices of the mediation and arbitration service. No agreement was reached at the meeting, despite Iberia’s undertaking to be flexible in considering the proposals advanced by the unions. However, though the opportunity to move forward was missed, the meeting could be another step towards future negotiations. Iberia hopes that in the future the possibilities of dialogue and negotiations will be exhausted before any new strikes are called since they inflict great harm on the company and its customers.

Iberia is delighted that its customers may now look forward to travelling without problems, though it regrets the damage already caused to company’s public image and to its business.

Iberia also thanks the mediation and arbitration service for its herculean efforts two bring the tow side closer together. Though no agreement was reached, its efforts had very positive results for Iberia’s customers.

Good news! I'm coming home for Xmas then 

However most of us are learning. Every holiday peak season (summer, Xmas, Easter) Iberia's unions call on a strike.

I'd say "avoid, avoid, avoid"!

I don't get it....seems like they think destroying the company is better than making sacrifices

Brinkmanship at its best. Still, it´s a dangerous technique.

Hopefully they will allow Willie Walsh to rescue their airline for them and drag them from the 1970s to the 21st century. If so, they are so well positioned to thrive on the South Atlantic routes (in partnership of course with LATAM) while BA does the same across the North Atlantic (especially if AA can get its act together). And as regards Europe-Asia and intra-Europe - oops ok I admit there are some problems there.
