The trade unions of SAS, the Scandinavian airline, do not support the idea that SAS Cargo should split off from the company.

The management has said that there are plans to split off SAS Cargo from 1 January next year, but SAS employees fear that the cargo division could then be sold abroad. All the trade unions reportedly oppose the idea that SAS be divided into smaller units and it has been claimed that the unions may delay aircraft from keeping to schedule, with action possibly starting as early as this week.

According to the Norwegian news agency NTB, SAS Cargo has a total of 200 employees in Norway and 1,200 internationally.
