ROME (Reuters) - Italy’s main pilots’ union, Anpac, called off a planned four-hour strike against Ryanair on Friday after the company said it would recognise the union in a bid to avoid the walkout.

An Anpac source said it had received a letter from Ryanair and that talks between the company and the union to establish a national contract would begin soon.

Fit-Cisl, a union that represents fewer pilots, said it would go ahead with the strike.
