Germany -Security workers strike at airports -January 25, 2013

The services-sector trade union Ver.di began work stoppages to back up its demand for a major pay raise for the security staff employed by contractors who are responsible for checking passengers and their carry-on luggage prior to flights. Ver.di is demanding a pay increase of 30%. According to the union, as much as 80% of the security personnel work for a wage of €8.23 per hour. The employers argue that they have already rejected a 9% raise for other airport workers and that complying with the demand would cost jobs.
