In a move designed to help reach long-term labor peace, Lufthansa has invited the leadership of all 3 Unions that represent their employees to sit down with the airline’s leadership.

On December 2, leaders from UFO (Flight Crew Union),  VC (Pilots Union), and Verdi (Ground Staff) will meet with LH so that all sides that share their expectations.   Lufthansa is expected to present what their objectives are in terms of striking a balance between sustained long term success of the airline and the benefits and needs of employees.

With this meeting scheduled, it seems that the threat of strikes has been abated at least for the short term.   There have also been hints along the way that strike risks should be low during the Holiday season and if the meeting is constructive on December 2, we may see the risks of strikes reduce even further.
