Germany -More strikes at Lufthansa -March 23, 2013

After a series of actions last year and in February, as reported in the December newsletter, Lufthansa personnel has organised another one-day strike in an on-going wage dispute. While Lufthansa continues to hold on to a pay freeze, trade unions continue to point out a pay raise is long overdue. The trade union Ver.di said in a statement that no agreement was reached in the latest round of talks and that another walkout was possible before the next round, which is due to start on 17April, but not over Easter. Meanwhile, the Frankfurt labour court just rejected Lufthansa and Fraport compensation claims over costs incurred in previous walk-outs.
