Germany - Job cuts expected at Air Berlin - September 30, 2016

In an effort to improve efficiency and reduce costs, carrier Air Berlin will ‘rigorously continue its current restructuring program’. The Süddeutsche Zeitung reported that the struggling airline was aiming to reduce its payroll by 1,000 jobs and downsizing its fleet to about 70 airplanes by the end of 2016. So far, trade union ver.di has not been invited to start talks. In its internal bulletin for the Air Berlin section, the union writes that many rumours are going on without a clear signal to the workforce about the impact of the operation.
