Lufthansa faces 14th strike in pilots’ salaries dispute

 German Pilots Union, Vereinigung Cockpit, has called for another strike at Lufthansa amid salary dispute that has been ongoing for more than two years, a report said.

The union announced on Monday that the strike, which would be announced at 24 hours’ notice, was prompted by a breakdown in salary negotiations for Lufthansa’s 5,400 pilots and co-pilots.

Lufthansa has faced lengthy strikes by pilots and cabin crew in recent years.

This happened again as it attempts to roll out new cost-cutting measures in the face of competition from Middle Eastern airlines and budget carriers.
