Lufthansa Union Strike 2024: What You Need to Know

Lufthansa Flight
If you're planning to fly with Lufthansa early February 2024, you might want to double check whether your flight is still on schedule.

Major disruptions are set to affect Lufthansa’s schedules towards the end of the first week of February 2024. According to the Ver.di Union they are calling on 25,000 ground employees working for Lufthansa to walk out. This walkout is set to take place for around 27 hours from early on Wednesday 7th February. This union strike walk-out is applicable all across Lufthansa at Frankfurt, Munich, Hamburg, Berlin and Dusseldorf.

The airline advises travellers to be cautious of their flight schedules as the staff are set to go on strike. The Lufthansa strikes come as part of a wave of industrial action across Germany’s transport sector so far this year. Just last week, there was a call for a one-day strike for all security workers across the major airports in the country.

The union strikes started after Ver.di sought a pay rise of 12.5 per cent, or at least an extra €500 per month, for ground employees at Lufthansa.

The strikes are scheduled to occur from 4 am on February 7th to 7:10 am on February 8th.

Customers who will be affected by an irregularity will receive information about cancellations and rebooking options today (5 February) from around 4.00pm by email or in the Lufthansa app, says Lufthansa.

Ver.di union is the second-largest German Trade union, which has been working towards better pay for Lufthansa ground staff.
