Strike at Dusseldorf Airport Causes the Cancelation of Flights

A one-day strike of security personnel at Dusseldorf Airport has caused the cancelation of 172 flights out of a total of 593 flights scheduled for the day.  The walkout of 250 workers is said to be a warning as they demand higher pay.  This is a common tactic used by unions in Germany to put pressure on their employers.

The ver.di union is looking to gain a 30% pay raise this year for their private security workers, which includes approximately 2000 airport security personnel, as well as another 32,000 security workers in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.  Employers have offered a raise of 9%.  The union has staged previous strikes this year in Duesseldorf Airport, Cologne-Bonn Airport, and Hamburg Airport, where the workers are also seeking a pay raise.

The above article is a summary.  Please see the source article at Google News.
