Lufthansa airline comany's cabin crew members set to strike

By Curious

Many of Lufthansa travelers might have their travel schedules disrupted after talks aimed at averting industrial activity by cabin crew members collapsed.
The UFO union that introduced 18,000 flight attendants at the German airline company, Lufthansa, told it can call a strike at just several hours’ notice, meaning a 1st walk-out may take place as early as Wednesday.
A spokesman for the UFO union also told in the statement that the strikes might last for “5 or 6 hours at a time” and aimed “selected airports”.
Negotiations among the UFO union and Lufthansa airline company, aimed at ending a thirteen-month pay dispute, broke down on Monday evening.
The UFO union that wants a 5 % pay increase for its crew members following a 3-year pay freeze, last week said cabin crew to start preparing for a strike so it could take action as quickly as possible.
