Iberia and unions reach agreement: strike off

Iberia on the ground
MADRID Iberia, the airline that belongs to IAG (International Airlines Group) together with British Airways, has reached an agreement with the main unions, who have called of the strike that had been scheduled for Easter, one of the year's busiest times. The proposal to call off the strike came from the mediator in the otherwise bitter negotiations, Gregorio Tudela. So far, the number of redundancies proposed by IAG has been reduced from 3,807 to 3,141. The unions entered the negotiations last year in the belief that Iberia was about to be 'dismantled' by BA, which, in the medium term would not be entirely surprising for an airline that loses close to a million euros a day.
