Lufthansa Pilots Opt For Industrial Action Over Pay: Reuters

  • By a vote of 97.6% in favor of industrial action, pilots at the flag carrier of Germany, Deutsche Lufthansa AG DLAKY, threatened additional disruption during the busy summer travel season, reported Reuters.
  • According to pilot's union Vereinigung Cockpit (VC) board member Marcel Groels, the vote does not necessarily mean a strike would be held. Still, it signaled to the employer that constructive steps needed to be taken.
  • "We are showing we are ready to talk," he added.
  • The report added that the Pilots' union VC demands a 5.5% pay rise this year for its pilots and automatic inflation compensation after that.
