Chaotic conditions are threatening at Lufthansa on Wednesday, because the Verdi union is calling on around 20.000 ground workers to go on a one-day warning strike. The background is that collective bargaining is considered deadlocked.

The employee representatives assume that there will be numerous cancellations and considerable delays on Wednesday. The unionized ground workers are being asked to stop work from 3:45 am.

The warning strike is scheduled to end around 6 a.m. on Thursday. Verdi wants to increase the pressure on the Kranich management in the deadlocked wage negotiations. It is not yet possible to foresee how many Lufthansa connections will be canceled due to the announced industrial action by the ground staff.
