Courts give a nod to 48-hour strike, hundreds of Lufthansa flights cancelled

Published on : Thursday, November 7, 2019

A 48-hour strike has been announced by the Lufthansa cabin crew on Thursday which has forced to cancel 1,300 Lufthansa flights.

 

 

The airline has offered train tickets for travel within Germany to make up for hundreds of cancelled flights.

 

The strike could not be quashed by the German airline before it started. It was rules by the Frankfurt’s labour court  and the Hesse region’s labour court to act as an appeal court which ruled that the cabin crew trade union UFO had legally asked the members to stage the stoppage.

 

 

Lufthansa had cancelled 1,300 out of the 6,000 flight scheduled , 700 and 600 on Thursday and Friday respectively. The flights departing from Germany had been majorly affected by the industrial action.

 

 

The voting procedure was being questioned by the airline based on the injunction by questioning the voting procedure used among the UFO members to take a call on the industrial action.

 

For additional allowances at wage negotiations UFO planned the warning strike to press Lufthansa what it claimed was management’s ‘ongoing refusal’ to negotiate.

 

 

Lufthansa announced after rulings that passengers who had booked flights between German airports could turn their tickets into rail tickets through an online procedure.

 

 

Demanding for better pay and conditions the union had on Monday called on Lufthansa cabin crew to prepare for the strike.

 

 

The deputy chairman of the UFO cabin crew union stated that it will be affecting all Lufthansa flights scheduled to leave from airports in Germany.

Eurowings and SunExpress, Lufthansa’s affiliate airlines were also threatened by the disruptions.
