Strike at Frankfurt airport continues

By  |  0 Comments

The ongoing strike at the Frankfurt airport will be extended through early Wednesday, union officials said. Representatives of the air traffic controllers’ union GdF said their strike will last through 5 AM on Wednesday, AP reports. In their demand for better pay, some 200 ground workers went on strike on Thursday and Friday, interrupting hundreds of flights.

The majority of the cancellations were flights operated by Lufthansa to destinations within Europe.
A spokesman for airport operator Fraport AG, Mike Peter Schweitzer, said the cancellations come out of 1,250 flights scheduled, according to AP.

The GdF union has been locked in a pay dispute with Fraport AG for months. The strike came after the company rejected the result of an arbitration panel as excessive.
