Eurowings condemns UFO strike name
German cabin-crew union UFO has known as for extra strikes at Lufthansa’s low-cost Germanwings unit after the 2 sides did not settle a long-running labour dispute. The union has known as on the cabin workers of Germanwings flight operations to go on strike from midnight on 30 December 2019 to midnight on 1 January 2020. Eurowings finds the present name for a three-day strike incomprehensible.
UFO intends to strike in opposition to the collective part-time settlement at Germanwings although Germanwings has already been utilizing the fashions for part-time allocation – which have been collectively developed in arbitration – for a 12 months now.
Germanwings is in steady constructive alternate with the organisation on numerous different collective-bargaining points that have an effect on its flight operations. Extra dates to proceed the talks have already been scheduled for 16-17 January 2020. It most not too long ago provided UFO a moderation of all pending collective bargaining matters on 23 December 2019. Sadly, the organisation rejected this provide. Towards this backdrop, the strikes in opposition to Germanwings not too long ago introduced by UFO are on no account understandable.
The truth that UFO is looking for a strike once more regardless of the continuing negotiations reveals how it’s ruthlessly finishing up its energy politics on the backs of consumers and workers.
Eurowings desires to maintain the affect of the strike on its passengers as minimal as attainable and is engaged on a particular flight schedule for the strike interval. It must be taken into consideration that solely 30 of the roughly 140 Eurowings plane are flying as a part of Germanwings flight operations.
