Germanwings Faces Two-Day Pilots' Strike

The Vereinigung Cockpit (VC) trade union has called on employees at Germanwings to down tools on February 12, 2015 and February 13, 2015 amid an ongoing dispute over retirement benefits. All outgoing Germanwings flights will be affected over the period, the union said. With this, Lufthansa again documents its lack of willingness to strike a deal, causing further strikes. The union is trying to force the airline to drop plans to cut transition payments for pilots willing to retire early. The labour representatives are also opposing Lufthansa's plans to set up a long-haul budget subsidiary to fend off competition from budget and Gulf-based airlines. The collective bargaining arrangements will not cover the new unit.
