Lufthansa, Airports: More Strikes in Germany

Verdi

More strikes in Germany will stop airport operations on Wednesday this time.
It appears the transportation industry is taken hostage again and again.

<

German Union Verdi keeps creating chaos at airports in Germany – again.
Last week most German airports had major interruptions because of strikes.

The week before no DB train operated anywhere in Germany, followed by busses, trams, and regional trains.

As reported this morning, another round of strikes will cripple Lufthansa and its flights from Frankfurt, Munich, Hamburg, Berlin, and Duesseldorf starting Wednesday 4 am until Thursday 7.10 am

Verdi is calling on everyone working in maintenance, to check in to stop working.

Year after year traveling to and from or within Germany becomes like playing a slot machine – sometimes you win.

This is not only a challenge for both domestic and international tourism, more so for Germans traveling to work or for business.

The Verdi union represents some 90,000 transport workers at around 130 municipal transit agencies.

Some in Germany love strikes. These are some groups “For the Future of Germany”, and they applaud strikes to combat climate change.

It appears one of the largest and most important Western economies is taken hostage again and again due to strikes. Unfortunately, it doesn’t just harm those that are targeted.

Such actions have victims in many sectors, but Germany has become a very unreliable travel and tourism destination in the world.

Such actions also have a snowball effect in many other economies around the world that are connected to Germany or do business with the country.

There should be limits, so essential industries, such as transportation can function.
