Lufthansa crews are going on strike


The cabin crew of airline company Lufthansa and price fighting daughters Eurowings and Germanwings will cease during the summer holidays. The German trade union UFO announced this. The strikes can have consequences for travelers if flights fail.

The trade union and Lufthansa have been battling for some years about the payroll of cabin crew. The conflict now focuses primarily on Eurowings. Ufo wants the remuneration policy to be determined group-wide.

In March the union had already announced that it would strike in the summer if no solution was found. Lufthansa did not respond to that.

At Eurowings and Germanwings, cabin crews can speak out “as quickly as possible” about actions. At Lufthansa it takes a few more weeks before that time. Only when that formal hurdle has been overcome can UFO bring out concrete strike plans.
