Passengers of the low-cost airline Easyjet have to be prepared for numerous cancellations and delays at Berlin-Brandenburg Airport on Friday, June 10, 2022. The Verdi union is calling on around 450 flight attendants to go on warning strike.

A few days ago, employee representatives indicated that such industrial action could be taken if Easyjet management does not submit an improved offer. According to a statement by Verdi negotiator Holger Rößler, no such agreement was received and the members are now being called on to stop work.

To put it simply, it goes next to that of Easyjet announced job cuts at the Berlin-Brandenburg site about the wages of the flight attendants. These should not have been increased in the last two years. Easyjet has offered a salary increase and a one-off payment for the coming year. From the point of view of the Verdi union, the current offer from the carrier is too low and would take into account neither the current additional burden nor the sharp increase in the cost of living.

At the Berlin-Brandenburg location, a strike is to take place between 5:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. on Friday, June 10, 2022. The cabin crew represented by Verdi was called on to walk out. It is currently not foreseeable how many flight attendants will actually take part in the warning strike. Passengers can expect many cancellations and significant delays throughout the day.
