Pilots at Lufthansa vote for strike

Published:
BERLIN — Pilots at Germany’s Lufthansa have voted for strike action in a long-running pay dispute with the airline, but their union hasn’t yet set dates for any walkouts.
The Vereinigung Cockpit union said Friday that 97.2 percent of pilots at Lufthansa, Lufthansa Cargo and the company’s budget airline Germanwings who participated in a ballot voted for strikes. It said it will give at least 48 hours’ notice of any walkouts and doesn’t currently plan strikes over Easter — though that might change.
Among other issues in the dispute, the union has complained that Lufthansa failed to make a “negotiable offer” in two years of pay negotiations.
Lufthansa has been trying to cut costs amid tough competition from European budget carriers and from aggressively expanding government-owned Gulf airlines.
