Germany -Flight attendants postpone strike -July 03, 2015

Strike postposed after progress in the negotiations on the airline's pension scheme. More progress awaited.

After progress in the negotiations on the airline's pension scheme the Lufthansa flight attendants have postponed a planned strike until mid-July at the earliest. Lufthansa had been facing a 30 June deadline to make concessions to cabin crew regarding improved pensions and higher pay or potentially deal with a strike during the busy summer holiday season. The trade union will wait for the talks in the next weeks, whether it gets to the point where a collective agreement can be concluded that can permanently avert the strikes.
