Lufthansa cabin crews to extend strikes
September 3 , 2012
Cabin staff at German airline Lufthansa are to go on strike again on Tuesday after labor action on Friday over pay and cost-cutting measures brought Frankfurt airport to a standstill.
The union plans to strike for longer than the eight hours on Friday and at more airports.
It is still to announce where and when but will issue a warning at least six hours before the new stoppages start.
An impasse between the union and the airline has lasted for more than a year.
The union is looking for a pay increase of 5 percent for cabin staff for 15 months starting from January this year.
Lufthansa's latest offer was for a pay increase of around 3.5 percent.
