Frankfurt (dpa) – The German flight attendants’ union Ufo announced late Saturday that it will hold another strike, marking the latest development in its stand-off with German airline Lufthansa.
A spokesman for the union told dpa that the details of the work stoppage would be announced on Wednesday.
Ufo and the airline have been at loggerheads for some time, due not only to wage issues, but also the recognition of Ufo as a trade union. It has organized a series of cabin crew strikes that have impeded German air travel.
The union had sought mediation to cover a broad range of topics including the reversal of dismissals and lawsuits against its former and current board members. It also wants to achieve separate solutions for Lufthansa’s subsidiaries.
Ufo held a three-day strike over the New Year period at the Lufthansa subsidiary Germanwings; around 200 flights were cancelled.
Strikes had previously also taken place at four other subsidiaries, as well as a two-day strike at the Lufthansa parent company.
