Verdi Atrike Hits Lufthansa

Lufthansa cancelled more than 500 flights today (March 21) due to a five-hour strike by ground workers. Union Verdi called on 33,000 of its members to down tools as it seeks a 5.2 per cent pay hike and job protection. To the union’s fury, Lufthansa has instead proposed a pay freeze and asked staff to work an extra hour each week as it seeks to boost competitiveness.
