Verdi recently called on Lufthansa ground staff to stop work.

Now the cabin workers will probably follow.

Update from February 23, 2024, 6:43 a.m.:

Lufthansa passengers have to prepare for new strikes in the next collective bargaining dispute at the airline.

On Thursday, the UFO union declared collective bargaining for around 18,000 cabin workers to have failed.

She called on her members to decide on strikes in a strike vote starting next week by March 6th.

The Independent Flight Attendants Organization (Ufo) in Frankfurt announced that Lufthansa did not present a sufficient offer in another top-level meeting.

“We do not like to go down the path of escalation, but we have no alternative as long as Lufthansa does not respond to our legitimate demands,” said UFO chairman Joachim Vázquez Bürger.

The cabin has demands that are more than justified.

During the crisis, employees made major concessions to secure jobs.

Bürger said he expects a high turnout in the ballot.

Update from February 20, 2024, 6:50 a.m.:

Lufthansa passengers have to improvise on Tuesday.

Another warning strike at the company has led to numerous flight cancellations since Monday evening.

According to Lufthansa, more than 100,000 customers could be affected.

The strike is scheduled to last until 7:10 a.m. on Wednesday in individual parts of the company, but will generally end on Wednesday night.

According to Verdi, Lufthansa employees in technology, logistics, freight and IT went on warning strike on Monday evening.

On Tuesday, the airline wants to fly 10 to 20 percent of its planned program of around 1,000 flights.

Munich Airport warned of significant restrictions.

According to the operators, all 23 Lufthansa flights are canceled in Hamburg and Düsseldorf, and almost all in Cologne/Bonn.

Airports that are not on strike are also affected: In Hanover and Bremen, all Lufthansa flights to and from Frankfurt and Munich have been canceled.

Update from February 18, 2024, 2:08 p.m.:

There will be another strike at Lufthansa from Tuesday morning (February 20).

The Verdi service union has called on ground staff to go on a warning strike.

This is scheduled to start at 4 a.m. and end on Wednesday at 7:10 a.m.

In the passenger sector, the Lufthansa locations Frankfurt am Main, Munich, Hamburg, Berlin, Düsseldorf, Cologne-Bonn and Stuttgart are affected.

According to Verdi, there are likely to be major flight cancellations and delays.

New strike at Lufthansa subsidiary – and pilots from the parent company join in

Update from February 16, 2024, 9:51 p.m.:

 In the industrial dispute at the Lufthansa subsidiary Discover Airlines, the Cockpit Association union is increasing the pressure.

For the first time, she called on long-haul pilots from the parent company Lufthansa to go on strike in solidarity with their Discover colleagues.

The support campaign announced on Friday is limited to the Boeing 787 sub-fleet, which only has a few aircraft.

There will be a strike on five departures from Frankfurt between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m. on Monday morning (February 19).

Other takeoffs with other aircraft types are not affected.

The Cockpit Association union has called on its members to go on a three-day strike starting next Saturday.

The strike is scheduled to end on Monday at 11:59 p.m.

Since December, the pilots have already carried out a five-hour warning strike and two regular strikes to reach an initial collective agreement.

The Cockpit Association said the aim is still to reach a conclusion on remuneration and general tariffs.

Update from February 13, 2024, 5:00 p.m.:

There are no signs of a quick agreement in the collective bargaining dispute among Lufthansa ground staff, even after an improved offer from the company.

On Tuesday, Verdi negotiator Marvin Reschinsky described the offer as “anti-social” compared to the pilots.

In a circular from the union to members it said: “The group is providing maximum increases for other professional groups with incomes of up to 300,000 euros per year.

We on the ground with starting hourly wages of 13 euros, on the other hand, should continue to be content with a fraction.”

New Lufthansa strike likely – Verdi rejects offer as “unsocial”.

In dem neuen Angebot kürzt das Unternehmen die Laufzeit von 36 auf 25 Monate und bietet die Inflationsausgleichsprämie in voller Höhe von 3000 Euro für alle Beschäftigten an. Die erste Tabellenerhöhung von 4 Prozent soll dem Vorschlag entsprechend im Dezember 2024 greifen vor einer zweiten Stufe von 5,5 Prozent im Februar nächsten Jahres. Verdi will die Lage in den kommenden Tagen mit den Beschäftigten diskutieren und über das weitere Vorgehen beraten. 

Update vom 12. Februar 2024, 21:38 Uhr: Nach dem 27-stündigen Warnstreik des Lufthansa-Bodenpersonals verhandeln die Tarifparteien wieder. Am Frankfurter Flughafen kamen am Montag Vertreter der Gewerkschaft Verdi und der Lufthansa zusammen, wie beide Seiten berichteten.

Update vom 8. Februar 2024, 6:40 Uhr: Der Verdi-Warnstreik bei der Lufthansa wird auch am Donnerstag noch zu einigen Flugausfällen führen. Der am Mittwoch um 4.00 Uhr begonnene Ausstand soll am Donnerstag um 7.10 Uhr enden, wenn die letzte Nachtschicht bei der Frachtgesellschaft Lufthansa Cargo zu Ende gegangen ist. Nach bis zu 900 Flugabsagen am Mittwoch hat die Fluggesellschaft für Donnerstagvormittag rund 30 Starts an ihren Drehkreuzen Frankfurt und München gestrichen.

An den Warnstreiks an den Standorten Frankfurt, München, Hamburg, Düsseldorf und Berlin nahmen am Mittwoch rund 7000 Menschen teil, wie Verdi-Verhandlungsführer Marvin Reschinsky berichtete. Er droht bereits mit einer Verlängerung des Arbeitskampfs: Ohne deutlich besseres Angebot, „könne man auch länger“, sagte Reschinksy.

Lufthansa-Streik 2024: Verdi ruft 25.000 Beschäftigte zu Arbeitsniederlegungen auf

Erstmeldung vom 6. Februar 2024: München – Es wird wieder chaotisch an deutschen Flughäfen, die Verdi hat für kommenden Mittwoch (7. Februar 2024) zum ganztägigen Streik von Lufthansa-Bodenpersonal an mehreren Standorten aufgerufen. Aufgerufen sind unter anderem Beschäftigte der Bodendienste im Check-in-Bereich und der Flugabfertigung sowie die Technik. Damit setzt sich eine Streikserie fort, nachdem bereits vergangene Woche Streiks an Flughäfen in Deutschland für Unruhe gesorgt haben.

Der Streik soll am Mittwoch um 4 Uhr beginnen und am Donnerstag um 7 Uhr enden. Betroffen seien die Flughäfen in Frankfurt, Hamburg, Berlin, Düsseldorf und München. Die Gewerkschaft bezeichnete die Tarifverhandlungen zwischen der Lufthansa und der Verdi für rund 25.000 Bodenbeschäftigte in einer Pressemitteilung als „enttäuschenden Verhandlungsauftakt“.

Betroffen? Stimmen Sie mit ab.

„Größere Flugausfälle“: Verdi fordert 12,5 Prozent mehr Gehalt – jetzt kommt der Lufthansa-Streik am 7. Februar

With the strike on Wednesday, the union wants to put pressure on Germany's largest airline.

Verdi is therefore demanding 12.5 percent more salary, but at least 500 euros more per month for twelve months and better conditions for shift work.

Negotiations are scheduled to continue on February 12th.

Ver.di had already presented its demands at the beginning of December and sent them to the Lufthansa Group.
