UK low-cost carrier (LCC) easyJet has reached an agreement with pilots in a dispute over fatigue, averting industrial action.

“In a ballot that closed today, easyJet pilots have voted by 68% to 32% to accept the latest proposal put forward by the company, therefore bringing to an end the potential for industrial action,” the British Airline Pilots’ Association (BALPA) said in a statement.

In September, union members voted in favor of industrial action, but easyJet came back with an improved offer that has now been accepted.

“BALPA will now be working closely with easyJet to ensure this agreement delivers real improvements to pilots’ lifestyles,” BALPA general secretary Brian Strutton said.
