Staff at Eurowings, Germanwings strike

Walkout concerns longstanding union-management dispute
Passengers flying on Lufthansa’s low-cost subsidiaries are being hit by a strike on Thursday, involving employees at Eurowings and Germanwings.
German cabin crew union UFO said there was no alternative to the 24-hour walkout, after negotiations failed with Eurowings’ management on part-time work contracts for flight attendants. The dispute between Eurowings and UFO has been a problem for more than two years.
The strike will affect airports in Düsseldorf, Cologne, Dortmund, Hanover, Stuttgart, Berlin and Hamburg, the union said.
“We find the call for a strike completely incomprehensible. We remain ready to talk at any time of the day or night,” a spokesman for Eurowings insisted.
