Germany -Lufthansa forced to cancel nearly all flights during major one-day strike -April 22, 2013

After the third round of collective agreement negotiations failed, ground staff and cabin crew of Lufthansa staged another major strike on 22 April. The strike grounded nearly all carriers’ flights and was called excessive by the company. In the negotiations, trade union Ver.di is demanding a 5.2% wage increase and job guarantees for 33,000 Lufthansa ground staff, plus employees of various subsidiaries as well as cabin crew members who are union members. In its counter offer, Lufthansa only wants to agree to performance based wage increases for smaller groups of workers.
