Luxembourg -Cargolux unions demand guarantees against outsourcing -March 15, 2015

LCGB (the Trade union) has now demanded written guarantees against outsourcing.

Trade union LCGB has asked for written assurances against outsourcing from air freight company Cargolux before proceeding to the next stage of collective agreement negotiations. The negotiations, which started in the end of 2014 as reported in previous newsletters, seemed completely stalled until the dispute was referred to the national conciliation office in January. Unions and management have now agreed on a number of compromise solutions as well as to establish of several working groups to discuss remaining problems in more detail. Before agreeing to send delegates to the working groups, however, LCGB has now demanded guarantees against outsourcing. In particular, the demands are meant to stop the transfer of three planes to Cargolux Italia, taking jobs away from the Luxembourg sites.
