Lufthansa crew makes strike decision
BERLIN - The Associated Press
Employees of Lufthansa are seen on strike at the Frankfurt airport in 2009. AP photoA union representing cabin crew at Lufthansa, Germany’s largest airline, says its members will go on strike tomorrow after talks on pay and working conditions broke down. UFO union chairman Nicoley Baublies said on ARD television yesterday that crews would stay off the job for several hours today, but did not provide more specific details on exactly when the strike would take place.
The strike at all German airports where Lufthansa has staff is expected to cause widespread delays and cancellations.
Baublies says workers at airports outside of Germany won’t be on strike, but cautioned that the strike would still affect Lufthansa’s passengers elsewhere.
