Austria - Agreement at Austrian Lufthansa subsidiary - April 30, 2018

Trade union Vida, the union for cabin crews, and Lufthansa’s Austrian Airlines started in October 2017 with their bargaining round with the main dispute concerning a pay rise (see our March newsletter). Austrian Airlines offered an increase in salaries of 2.1% and an additional onetime pay of 1.4%. The works council and the trade union wanted to raise the wage level to the standard level that is paid across the industry. Following further negotiations, the collective bargaining partners succeeded in establishing a key issues paper for the conclusion of a collective agreement. Parties have agreed not to publicise any further details on the agreement at the moment. Eurowings did not provide any details of the deal with Vida. The union stated that cabin crew would get a starting monthly salary of 1,700 euro, up from under 1,500 euro previously.
