Iberia cancels third phase of strikes

Staff at Iberia have called off further strikes after accepting a deal over job and salary cuts.

Unions representing the workforce had planned a series of five-day walk-outs on February 18-22, March 4-8 and March 18-22, but have now cancelled the third phase planned for next week.

The decision came after a government-appointed mediator was called in and persuaded unions to accept an offer by parent International Airlines Group.
