• Conflict over water, coal

    SA's leaders have upped their support of the water-intensive coal industry, says Keith Schneider.

  • Cost of doing business

    The world can't afford the $4.7trn a year in environmental costs of business, says Mandi Smallhorne.

  • Voter paralysis

    With so much tilting voters against change, democratic reason is the loser, says Solly Moeng.

No headway in SAS talks

Nov 18 2012 12:47
Sapa-AP
Stockholm - The troubled Scandinvian airline SAS says negotiations between owners and unions have so far failed to yield an agreement that could save the troubled carrier from bankruptcy.

Owners and creditors of the tri-nation SAS have drafted a programme to slash costs and jobs, but the plan needs the approval from pilot and cabin crew unions.

The airline said Sunday talks over the past week were "intense" and would continue in the hope of reaching an agreement before a key board of director meeting scheduled later on Sunday.

SAS managers are hoping to renegotiate employment terms and pensions for its staff and slash about 800 jobs as part of a $440m annual saving plan. Thousands of other jobs would be outsourced.
