Germany -Lufthansa crew staged full week strike – further action called off -November 27, 2015

It looks as a breakthrough has been reached in an ongoing dispute at Lufthansa. The cabin crew union UFO organised a weeklong strike, stranding 4,700 flights and over half a million passengers. The actions constituted a series of strike in a conflict that started over two years ago, as reported in various newsletters. In the run up to the strikes, Lufthansa took legal action and was originally granted an injunction by the Dusseldorf court, which was later overruled by the labour court in Darmstadt, which considers the strike legitimate. The latest news is that the  cabin crew called off a strike originally planned for late November, a step toward ending the dispute that brought on the airline’s longest-ever disruption. To avoid further protests, trade union UFO said it needs to reach a deal with Lufthansa by 2 December, the date of a so-called employment summit between the airline and unions including representatives of pilots and ground crew.
