Luxembourg -Unions ask for mediator in Cargolux dispute -January 15, 2015

Trade unions OGBL and LCGB have asked the national conciliation office to mediate in the negotiations of a collective agreement at Cargolux. After sluggish negotiations, Cargolux terminated the collective agreement that expired in December 2014, promising to ‘establish a timeframe for the next stages of the negotiation process’.

Trade unions OGBL and LCGB have asked the national conciliation office to mediate in the negotiations of a collective agreement at Cargolux. After sluggish negotiations, Cargolux terminated the collective agreement that expired in December 2014, promising to ‘establish a timeframe for the next stages of the negotiation process’. However, unions consider the termination of the agreement an attack on social bargaining and protest against proposed measures that would involve a salary freeze, longer working hours, fewer recuperation days and lower wage scales for new hires. Cargolux said it would only commit to sustaining the Luxembourg site if unions agree to the new agreement as proposed.
