Germany -New strikes announced at Lufthansa -September 01, 2012

New strikes are planned for Lufthansa cabin crews after wage talks broke down. Unions report they are prepared to go on indefinite strike as well as brief walkouts and that actions would affect all German airports. The workers are asking for a 5% wage increase after three years of wage moderation and object to the carrier’s plan to employ more temporary staff on its cabin crews in order to cut costs. The announced strikes come as Lufthansa posted a net loss of 168 million euro over the first two quarters of 2012.
