Lufthansa pilots to strike again this week

The union is looking for a 5.5 percent wage rise by the end of the year

Pilots at German airline company Lufthansa will certainly strike once again today, their union Cabin stated Tuesday, intensifying a wage conflict.

The pilots for guest trips will certainly leave from 12.01 get on Wednesday to 11.59 pm on Thursday, while the commercial activity for those running freight trips will certainly last a day much longer to 11.59 pm on Friday.

The strike comes simply a week after the airline company was required to terminate mostly all its trips on Friday as a result of a pilots’ walk-out, impacting 130,000 guests.

” In spite of statements on the contrary, Lufthansa has not yet approached us and also has not advance a brand-new deal,” stated Cabin in a declaration.

” This is definitely incomprehensible and also brings about an additional unneeded acceleration of the scenario.”

The pilot union is looking for a 5.5 percent wage rise by the end of the year, in addition to automated payment for rising cost of living and also changes on its income grid.

Lufthansa has stated the whole bundle looked for by Cabin would certainly elevate pilot employees expenses by 40 percent or 900 million euros ($ 900 million).

With rising cost of living rising, cumulative income negotiating is anticipated to be stressful in the coming months throughout Europe.

German customer rates increased by 7.9 percent in the year to August, according to information released recently by the government data firm Destatis.
