Germany - Pay deal for ground staff - March 31, 2017

Trade union Ver.di has agreed a three-year pay deal for its 2,000 workers at Berlin's airports, ending the threat of further strikes after industrial action caused the cancellation of some 2,000 flights in recent weeks. Trade union Ver.di had asked for an increase in pay for ground staff to 12 euro an hour from about 11 euros as part of a one-year collective agreement. Management first offered about 10 cents more an hour over four years and then improved that offer to an 8 percent increase over three years. The pay deal, achieved after mediation, envisages a 14 percent rise over three years in several steps, and an increase in the hourly wage as well as improvements in workers' contracts, Verdi said in a statement.
