Luxembourg -Luxair conciliation talks fail too -July 24, 2014

A first round of talks between LuxairGroup and trade unions OGBL, LCGB and ngl-snep at the national conciliation office has failed. The trade unions report that Luxair refuses to make any real wage offer, being only interested in an indefinite wage freeze despite a 1.9 million benefit in 2013.

A first round of talks between LuxairGroup and trade unions OGBL, LCGB and ngl-snep at the national conciliation office has failed. After regular negotiations for a new collective agreement broke down in June, as reported in this newsletter, the dispute went into conciliation. The trade unions report that Luxair refuses to make any real wage offer, being only interested in an indefinite wage freeze despite a 1.9 million benefit in 2013. The wage freeze would mean a loss to the trade unions, because the current agreement includes automatic salary increases. Luxair management denied the accusations and said it continued to hope talks would resolve the issue, but refused to extend the current agreement to allow for more time for negotiations. After walking out of the conciliation talks, trade unions have organised three one-hour protests.
