The air traffic controllers in Romania, from the trade union of the Romanian Air Traffic Services Administration (ROMATSA), ended the strike that they initiated on Tuesday, starting 9 AM.
During the four hours of protest, low-cost company Ryanair cancelled six flights, while 18 flights that were supposed to land on Henri Coanda Airport recorded delays of up to three hours, according to News.ro. In the case of planes that were scheduled to leave from Bucharest, there were delays on 16 flights.
Although the strike was suspended, the trade union leader Alecu Florin Diaconu said that the labor conflict has not been finished at future protests are possible.
Meanwhile, ROMATSA challenged the strike in court. Trade union members say they strike to raise awareness on issues related to the management of the state-owned company.
