Lufthansa Cargo staff strike
24 / 10 / 2011
LUFTHANSA Cargo staff staged a 90-minute strike at Frankfurt Airport (Germany) today in protest of Hesse court’s decision to impose a temporary night-flight ban.
Carrier personnel are worried about the security of thousands of jobs for flights between the hours of 23:00 and 05:00 local time when the ban comes in on 30 October. The Cargo division employs around 2,400 people at the airport.
Lufthansa Cargo said it had increased staff numbers during the day to try to reduce the impact of the strike on its customers.
