No deal but mediation ongoing over SAS pilot strike - employer group

STOCKHOLM, May 2 (Reuters) - Scandinavian airline SAS and unions have not yet reached a deal to end a pilot strike that has affected hundreds of thousands of travellers over the past week, a Swedish employers organisation said on Thursday.

"Mediation is still ongoing," Ebba Fredin, spokeswoman for the Swedish Confederation of Transport Enterprises, said.

SAS is due to hold a news conference later on Thursday.

Norwegian newspaper VG, public broadcaster NRK and business daily DN, all cited unidentified sources, earlier reported that the negotiating parties were nearing an agreement. (Reporting by Anna Ringstrom; Editing by Alexander Smith)
