The security personnel at the airports in Berlin, Düsseldorf, Cologne/Bonn, Bremen, Hanover and Leipzig/Halle have been called on Monday from 4:00 a.m. to midnight to go on strike. This was announced by the Verdi union.

The background is that the negotiations for wage increases have come to a standstill. Verdi had already called for a warning strike in Cologne/Bonn, Düsseldorf and Frankfurt/Main. The employee representatives are demanding at least one euro more per hour worked. Furthermore, the remuneration for a wide range of fields of activity is to be standardized at the highest level in each case.

Among other things, Verdi criticizes that the negotiating partner, the Federal Association of Aviation Security Companies, has not yet improved the offer submitted in the first round. The employers' side counters that they have already submitted two new proposals, but that they were subsequently confronted with further requests from the trade union.

Passengers traveling to/from Berlin, Dusseldorf, Cologne/Bonn, Bremen, Hanover or Leipzig/Halle should regularly check the current status of their booking and arrive at the airport as early as possible, as long waiting times at security checks are to be expected . It is currently assumed that many flights will have to be cancelled.
