German airline Lufthansa and a union representing its pilots say they’ve agreed to bring in an arbitrator with the hope of concluding a new wage agreement by the end of January.

Lufthansa and the Cockpit union said in statements Friday they’d agreed the day before ”to request arbitration in order to achieve a lasting solution.”
Cockpit has been staging strikes sporadically since April 2014. Its members walked out for six days in late November. The union has agreed that there will be no more strikes while the matter is in arbitration.
