Security Staff to Stage Strike at Germany's Biggest Airport

Friday, 11 January 2019 08:37 AM

BERLIN (AP) — A German labor union is calling on security staff at Frankfurt airport to go on strike next week in a dispute over pay.

The ver.di union said Friday that workers should walk out at Germany's biggest airport between 2 a.m. and 8 p.m. (0100-1900 GMT) Tuesday.

The union said it couldn't rule out other airports being affected by walkouts.

Ver.di says it's still waiting for employers to put forward a negotiable offer for some 23,000 security staff.

Earlier strikes resulted in the cancellation of hundreds of flights at Duesseldorf, Cologne-Bonn, Stuttgart and Berlin's two airports in recent days.

The union wants hourly pay for all workers conducting security checks to rise to 20 euros ($23.10). Employers association BDLS says this could amount to a 30-percent increase in some cases.
