Strikes are once again causing hundreds of flights to be cancelled at several German airports today. Security staff is refusing to work at Düsseldorf and Cologne/Bonn airport. This is the next strike in a series of strikes over pay rise negotiations that have been unsuccessful so far.
A thirty-percent pay rise – that is what security staff is demanding. The negotiations will be resumed on Monday. The union's demand is much more than what the employee is willing to give: their highest offer is 13.7 percent.
So far, 228 of 609 inbound flights have been cancelled at Düsseldorf airport, and 78 at Cologne/Bonn. This is the second time this week security personnel is refusing to work. Passengers are advised to check the airports' and airlines' websites today.
