German Court gives go-ahead to Lufthansa cabin crew strike


Jun 28, 2003
Dallas, TX
"The strike action is being organised by the UFO cabin crew union. However, Lufthansa does not believe that the UFO in its current form is qualified to represent cabin crew" making the strike illegal. Union is seeking 1.8% pay increase. Court ruled in favor of union.

What will happen?
Lufthansa’s service will likely be severely affected tomorrow unless the airline manages to reach an agreement with the union within the ten and a half hours. Lufthansa cabin crew in Frankfurt and Munich are set to walk out from midnight tonight.

Now there's an argument that all airlines could use. Just declare that you don't think the union is qualified to represent the striking group. If 1.8% raise is all they are asking, I would tend to agree.:rolleyes:
