Both parties have already agreed on specific dates for future conversations in the coming days, in a dispute over salary and working conditions, among other issues. In addition, both the company and the union have assured that there will be no more strikes from now until the end of the negotiations.

The company has reported that the workforce of almost 22,000 auxiliaries will see improvements from the start of the arbitration process. For example, stopovers on flights in Japan and South Korea will be increased and employees will receive a special payment of 1,500 euros on their next payroll.
