“The strike lasts up to 14 clock,” said a spokesman for the trade union Verdi. About 60 departures and 6000 passengers were affected, said the airport. Many travelers would probably wait longer than usual.
The background is the tough bargaining for the approximately 19,000 employees in the security industry. The union is demanding more money, the employer refuses. In order to increase the pressure, Verdi has called on Friday at the same time warning strikes at the airport in Hamburg. A solution to the collective dispute is not in sight.
