Luxembourg -Unions propose a loan to Cargolux -May 22, 2013

Trade unions LCGB and OGBL and Cargolux have agreed to extend the current collective agreement to the end of 2014 as negotiations for a new agreement proceed slowly. Trade unions are asking for less cuts and fewer layoffs. Amongst other things, the unions proposed that employees would temporarily forego their thirteenth month salary, to receive the pay only when the company will be in a position to afford it. Cargolux management, however, is holding on to larger cuts in order to reach a $49 million profit in 2014.
