Germany -Security workers strike -February 21, 2014

Security workers at Frankfurt airport went on strike, prompting dozens of flight cancellations and causing delays to travellers. The trade union ver.di that initiated the strike is calling for an hourly pay rate of 16 euro for security employees in the state of Hessen and said employers had offered between 10 euro and 13 euro an hour. Workers in other states get up to around 15 euros an hour. The strike came after four rounds of talks between ver.di and employers' association BDSW ended without an agreement.
