IG Metall threatens Airbus with further strikes

Things are simmering again between Airbus Germany and the IG Metall union. The collective bargaining was interrupted on Friday without result. The employee representatives are threatening renewed warning strikes.

This time the trade unionists have left the table, who also raise serious allegations against the management. The employee representatives claim that they would oppose an overall solution. The background is that Airbus wants to reposition the group.

The proposed sale of the Premium Aerotec subsidiary is particularly angry with IG Metall. Airbus counters this by stating that it will retain a 25,1 percent stake and that it would be the best way for the workforce. Otherwise one would have to take “tough restructuring measures”. Premium Aerotec manufactures smaller components for Airbus.

The union also does not fit into the fact that Airbus wants to relocate the assembly and hulls and structures in a new subsidiary. IG Metall assumes that around 13.000 employees will be affected. An employment guarantee is being demanded for the employees at the German locations. The next steps are now being discussed within the union, but it has already been said that one must be prepared for a further escalation, i.e. warning strikes.
