Another month, another strike in Europe.
This time, the union representing Security Personnel at Frankfurt(FRA) is calling on 5000 members to walk off the job tomorrow (February 21, 2014) in protest to protracted labor negotiations. The Union is seeking a €3 Euro/hr raise for their members from their current hourly rate of approximately €10.
The strike is expected to last from early morning through the evening and will involve security personnel working in baggage screening and general terminal security.
Lufthansa has suggested that flight operations may be affected by this strike and that delays and cancellations are possible.
If you are flying to FRA today or tomorrow, you should research to see what options are available to you as alternatives.
You can check your flight status tomorrow by using this link.
Additionally, you should check you booking (CLICK HERE) to see if Lufthansa has not already rebooked you or provided you with options to help avoid a potentially tough travel day tomorrow.
I’ll update this later if anything changes. To get the info as soon as possible, please follow me on twitter, @LufthansaFlyer since I may not have time to put together an actual post.
