Two-day warning strike by Lufthansa's Verdi strike hits passengers

Two-day warning strike by Lufthansa's Verdi strike hits passengers

It is scheduled to begin in passenger areas on Thursday at 4 a.m. and end on Saturday at 7:10 a.m. In the ongoing collective bargaining dispute for about 25,000 workers on the ground, there have already been two waves of warning strikes, each paralyzing passenger traffic for about a day. Last week, Verdi went on strike in parts of Lufthansa's technology and cargo handling departments in order to force an improved offer from the company. The next round is currently scheduled to be held on March 13 and 14. Verdi is only willing to hold early discussions if the offer is increased.

According to Verdi, employees who control aircraft loading at Lufthansa Cargo or are responsible for handling cargo went on strike on Saturday. According to a Lufthansa spokeswoman, there was, for example, a halt in accepting special shipments due to the warning strike. We are now trying to clear the backlog as quickly as possible.

Lufthansa criticizes Verdi

AUA's parent company Lufthansa has expressed anger at the constant warning strikes and has particularly criticized Verdi's preconditions for returning to the negotiating table. The group therefore questioned collective bargaining as a whole.

Marvin Reczynski, Verdi's negotiator, lamented the impact on passengers in a statement: “In the last few days, we have been intentionally disrupting passenger traffic with our strikes. However, by ignoring our request to negotiate, Lufthansa is telling us that it will only act if the pressure continues.” Passengers are in desperate need of solutions and reliability. “We and our employees are ready to make this happen with a serious offer.”
