Ballot: Lufthansa pilots vote for strike measures

The pilots of Lufthansa and Lufthansa Cargo, who are members of the Cockpit Association, voted in a ballot in favor of strike measures. The union emphasizes that work stoppages are not yet fixed.

Rather, the VC is of the opinion that the members have sent a clear signal of support for the goals of the Group Collective Bargaining Commission. With a turnout of 93,2% (DLH) and 95,7% (Lufthansa Cargo), 97,6% (DLH) and 99,3% (Lufthansa Cargo) voted to support the wage commission. The required quorum was thus clearly exceeded.

The demands of the pilots are primarily about compensating for the loss of real wages. Another central point of the demands on the employer is the alignment of the remuneration system in the body of employees while at the same time increasing the attractiveness of the lower wage levels.

"We now need a modern and fair, internationally competitive remuneration structure in all professional groups," says Marcel Gröls, Chairman of VC's collective bargaining policy. "Also in the interest of our passengers, Lufthansa now needs a serious will to find a solution in order to jointly create creative solutions in the interests of the company and its employees."
