Lufthansa warning strike ends – news.ORF.at

Upon request, Lufthansa ground workers ended their warning strike today, with their shift starting at 7:10 a.m., a company spokesperson said. The union had called on about 25,000 employees to stop working since Wednesday evening.

Departure boards at Lufthansa hubs in Frankfurt and Munich still had a few canceled flights in the morning. The company spokesman said that operations should be gradually intensified again throughout the day.

Due to the effects of the strike, there may be scattered delays and flight cancellations throughout the day. Passengers are requested to regularly check the status of their planned trip via the website and app.

About 1,000 flights were cancelled

About 1,000 flights were canceled on Thursday and yesterday, and only 10 to 20 percent of the originally planned flights were carried out. An additional warning strike carried out by aviation security forces in Hamburg and Frankfurt ended on Thursday. This means that no passenger can board the plane at these two airports.

In addition to the €3,000 inflation compensation bonus, the ver.di union is demanding a 12.5 percent salary increase for twelve months for ground staff. The next round of negotiations is scheduled to begin on Wednesday.
