Aviation: Collective bargaining between Lufthansa and Verdi continues

Collective bargaining for the approximately 20,000 Lufthansa ground staff will continue this Thursday. This has been confirmed by the Verdi and Lufthansa unions. In the morning, the interim results from the previous day were discussed internally before the delegations were to meet again in a Frankfurt airport hotel. No details were given as to the content.

The third round of negotiations in the collective bargaining dispute was scheduled for two days from the outset. It was preceded by a nationwide warning strike on Wednesday last week, which paralyzed almost the entire Lufthansa flight schedule. In the event of non-agreement, Verdi negotiator Christine Behle has already threatened further industrial action during the peak travel season.

The union is demanding salary increases of 9.5 percent over a period of twelve months, but at least 350 euros per month, which would result in higher increases in the lower salary brackets. The group had offered a two-stage increase in the basic salary by a total of 250 euros over a period of 18 months. The company had calculated that this would result in double-digit growth rates for remuneration groups up to EUR 3,000 gross.

The group wanted to make a further increase of two percent in July 2023 dependent on profit. Verdi rejects this coupling. The company had declared in the morning that it was confident of making an operating profit of 500 million again in the current year.
