Cabin crew at Lufthansa cancels strike

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

Lufthansa sharkletLufthansa’s cabin crew union UFO has canceled strike which is scheduled for Thursday and Friday. The announcement came from UFO on Wednesday in Frankfurt at a top-level meeting with the board of the airline. The union announced that Lufthansa had made concessions on important points in ongoing negotiations, which have been stuck on early retirement clauses in air crews’ contracts.

Two weeks after mounting the longest strike in the company's history, the UFO flight attendants' union said it would call off industrial action scheduled for Thursday and Friday to hold further talks with management.

The German flag carrier said in a statement that the two sides had agreed on new ground rules in their dispute, including arbitration in the most contentious area of the negotiations: pay and retirement provisions.

Lufthansa plans to hold a "jobs summit" on December 2 with UFO.
