German airline Lufthansa won a temporary victory on Tuesday in its bid to halt a week long cabin staff strike. A labor court in Dusseldorf ruled that the strike was unlawful, but only at the local airport, and only on Tuesday.
Different bosses, different rights: whether Germans are allowed to strike for better working conditions depends on if they work for a private employer, the church or the state. And that's just one of the rules.
Ending a long standoff laced with strikes, the German airline reached a complex agreement with crew union Ufo. Salary raises and job security have been cemented, while the pension system has been turned on its head.
A 24-hour strike by Eurowings cabin crew union UFO could be repeated once or twice next week if a deal over pay and working conditions is not reached. It is not yet known when the strike days would be.
Germany's flagship carrier has settled a long-running dispute with the cabin crew union UFO after six months of arbitration. Full details of the plan will be revealed next week.
