Luxembourg -Protests at Cargolux and Luxair as Qatar airways sells shares -November 19, 2012

Around 1500 people joined a protest against job losses and mid-term repudiation of the collective agreement at Cargolux and Luxair, reported in this newsletter over the last two months. The protesters gathered in front of the parliament in Luxembourg city on 13 November, demanding the government re-think its plans to sell shares to Qatari investors and speak up for workers. Only days later Qatar airways announced it is breaking up the relation with Cargolox, selling its 35% share in the business and that Cargolux chairman Albert Wildgen is to resign his position. Unions have asked the ministry for clarifications on the repercussions of the Qatari withdrawal and several other restructuring plans.
