Lufthansa cabin crew postpones strike for next six weeks
Lufthansa has heaved a sigh of relief at least for a few weeks and will continue to operate its flights as usual.
The airline recently announced that its customers will be able to buy air tickets to various destinations worldwide as Lufthansa’s cabin crew will continue to attend to their work and decided not to go on strike for the next six weeks.
Lufthansa in a statement said that the company executives and labor representatives have agreed to engage in a mediation process and find ways to arrive at a mutual agreement.
The airline’s cabin crew had been staging prolonged agitation over 5 percent pay hike and guarantees against outsourcing. The cash-strapped Lufthansa had been trying to effect major restructuring exercise to cut costs and improve profitability by $1.9 billion (1.5 billion Euros) by 2014.
Lufthansa had been forced to cancel over 1,000 flights due to strikes after previous talks fell apart following 13 months of negotiations over improved working conditions and pay raise.
Media reports quoted a labor representative as saying that further industrial action would always remain a possibility in case the mediation process fails.
