An air traffic control strike scheduled for 23 July 2018, has been cancelled, according to RTS.
The air traffic control union Skycontrol and Skyguide, the company that employs air traffic controllers at airports in Geneva, Sion, Bern and Lugano, restarted talks on Tuesday with help from CRCT, the canton of Geneva’s labour relations organisation.
In a Tweet yesterday, Skycontrol said there would be no strike.

A week earlier, Skyguide introduced a new staff agreement, which was signed by three quarters of the sector’s unions but not Skycontrol.
Skycontrol demanded 125 days of annual leave and annual pay increases of 1.8% over three years.
No details of the talks were available.
The strike would have only affected airports in Geneva, Sion, Bern, Lugano, Emmen and Granges.
