Union That Represents Palma Air Traffic Controllers Reaches Deal To Avoid Sedition Trial

The USCA union that represents 83 air traffic controllers in Palma has reached a deal to avoid trial for sedition or abandonment of service. In December of 2010 air chaos ensued when the workers took illegal strike action and forced hundreds of flight cancellations and delays.  The union has offered a 15 million euro settlement to passengers who were affected by the walk-out, which grounded more than 5000 flights and hundreds of thousands of passengers.
