The Verdi union and the management of the Lufthansa subsidiary Eurowings have agreed on a new collective agreement for cabin crew. Among other things, this stipulates that the salaries of flight attendants will in future be linked to inflation rates.

Put simply, this means that salaries will increase in line with the annual inflation rate. Two salary levels are planned, but the actual effects will only come from January 1, 2023. From this point in time, it is planned that salaries will be increased by the rate of inflation set by the Federal Statistical Office. The flight attendants are to receive the second stage on December 1, 2023, shortly before the end of the agreement.

In autumn 2021 it seemed as if the ideas of the employee representatives and the Eurowings management were almost insurmountable. There were minor protests. Ultimately, a compromise was agreed upon through negotiations, which is obviously supported by both sides.

Part of the collective agreement is that flight attendants should receive higher allowances for night work and overtime. According to the Verdi union, these will be increased by around 75 percent. In March 2022, the cabin crew should also receive a one-time "Corona bonus" of 400 euros. Cabin crews are to receive quarterly bonuses linked to overall productivity.

The new collective agreement expressly applies only to Eurowings Germany. The Austrian subsidiary Eurowings Europe has its own collective agreement for the Austrian locations. However, this does not apply to the bases in Palma de Mallorca, Pristina, Stockholm-Arlanda and Prague. Service contracts based on the respective local law apply here.
