Once again, the inmates have been taken over the asylum known as the German labor market and as a result operations will be paralyzed at airports throughout Germany tomorrow thanks to yet another strike.
As a result, Lufthansa has been forced to cancel nearly 1,000 of its 1,600 daily flights.
Airport workers at Frankfurt, Munich, Cologne, and Bremen plan to not do their jobs between 5am and 6pm.
The Union is obviously using this as an extortion tactic ahead of negotiations scheduled to take place on April 15 and 16. I suspect they’ll call additional strikes after tomorrow ahead of their talks. The Ver.di union is looking for a 6% raise for most public sector employees and they chose airport operations as their poster child for their latest tantrum.
