Frankfurt / Main – After the strike of the cabin crew union Ufo at the Lufthansa both sides want to come back into the conversation. According to reports, they are to advise on Sunday in a secret place about a possible arbitration of the collective bargaining conflict. Lufthansa and Ufo agreed strict silence on details. One needs the confidentiality, in order to solve difficult legal questions, Lufthansa CEO Carsten Spohr had said in advance. "If we settle, the whole thing must have legal support."
UFO spokesman Nicoley Baublies said he hopes a contract for conciliation talks will be signed this weekend. At the same time, the union once again threatened to extend the strikes to other Lufthansa companies before the meeting. For Lufthansa, "a complete U-turn," said Baublies. "Either we have a solution or we will announce that there must be a massive expansion. Because, if that's not enough, yes, then more companies have to go on strike and then it has to be longer. "On Monday, the further procedure will be announced.
Ufo had strike on Thursday and Friday, the Lufthansa core company. Lufthansa canceled a total of 1500 flights and spoke of 200 000 passengers concerned. The union had previously threatened to extend the strike. After the ballots, she is also on strike at four Lufthansa subsidiaries – at Germanwings, Eurowings Germany, Lufthansa City Line and SunExpress Germany.
Ufo calls in the tariff conflict for the approximately 21,000 Lufthansa flight attendants higher expenses and allowances and the better access for seasonal workers in regular employment. However, the main issue in the entire conflict is whether UFO can even enforce collective agreements for cabin crew.
