BERLIN – Another strike starting tomorrow, for two days, announced by Lufthansa pilots in the context of wage negotiations.
The management of the German flag carrier, however, announced that it could prevent the work stoppage by presenting a “new offer” to the union. The latter warned that possible flight cancellations in the coming days can be avoided only with a new “serious offer.”
Last Friday, the company had to cancel almost all flights from Frankfurt and Munich because of the pilots’ strike. Pilots are demanding a pay raise; Lufthansa employs 5,500 pilots and Vereinigung Cockpit is the only union representing them. The group reached an agreement in August with the Verdi union, which represents ground staff.
