Lufthansa cabin staff plan week of walkouts: union

Lufthansa cabin staff plan week of walkouts: unionFRANKFURT: Lufthansa cabin staff are threatening to stage a week of walkouts starting from Friday if management does not come up with an improved offer in an ongoing labour dispute, the union UFO said on Monday.

UFO chief Nicoley Baublies said the union had given management until Thursday afternoon to present an improved offer in a dispute over pay and early retirement provisions, otherwise staff would stage walkouts for a week starting from Friday.

“We will announce at short notice which flights will not be affected by the strike,” Baublies told a telephone news conference.

If the stoppages go ahead, it would be the first time that cabin staff have staged walkouts in the nearly two-year long dispute.

UFO is demanding that no changes be made to the current system of early retirement provisions.
