Lufthansa Airlines: Strike threat Jul 1 if no concessions by Jun 30


Cabin crew give airline deadline to avoid strike
Cabin crew at Lufthansa say they will strike on July 1 unless the airline makes concessions over pay and pensions. The UFO union has given Lufthansa a deadline of June 30 to meet their demands.
Lufthansa has been in lengthy talks with groups of employees as it tries to bring down costs and battles tough low-cost and Middle Eastern competition.
Mediation with UFO failed over the weekend and yesterday the union said that, besides July 1, further one-day strikes could last throughout the busy summer season until September 16. The airline says it remains ready to talk.
