The wage agreement negotiated between the flight attendants' union Ufo and Lufthansa Cityline was accepted by the members of the employee representatives with 95 percent approval.

The collective bargaining result presented related in particular to significant improvements in salary structures. The previous salary table will be increased in two steps. In a third step, an inflation premium is paid out and the company pension scheme is adjusted. In addition, the agreement includes a resumption of professional development measures and an agreement to negotiate open questions about the need to adapt management structures in due course.

“With this high level of approval, we have received a very clear sign from our membership that we have negotiated improvements exactly where they were most urgently needed. In times of galloping inflation, we were able to create noticeable relief for the CityLine cabin and take into account a social component for lower income groups. The deal means an increase in the guaranteed monthly salary of around 19,2% in the starting salaries and at the top end of the table still an increase of 13,4%,” says Joachim Vázquez Bürger, UFO board member and chief negotiator at Lufthansa CityLine.
