At the Lufthansa subsidiary Eurowings, the cabin crew will be on strike on Friday between 4 a.m. and 30 a.m. at the stations in Düsseldorf, Cologne / Bonn and Dortmund. The Verdi union called for a warning strike after unsuccessful collective bargaining.
It is the first work stoppage within the Lufthansa Group since the beginning of the corona pandemic. This has resulted in numerous flight cancellations and delays. This can continue over the entire day due to the machine revolutions.
“Eurowings has emerged stronger from the crisis and is making a profit. The cabin workers work on this under difficult working conditions with currently up to 40 hours of overtime per month. In return, they rightly expect financial recognition given current price increases for gasoline, rents and livelihoods, ”says Verdi negotiator Marvin Reschinsky.
