Deutsche Lufthansa AG will cancel at least 414 flights due to a strike on Tuesday by security staff at eight German airports, including the airline’s hubs in Frankfurt and Munich.
The cancellations include 386 flights within Europe and 28 intercontinental services, Lufthansa said on Monday. Airport-security workers in Frankfurt, Munich, Hamburg, Hanover, Bremen, Dresden, Leipzig/Halle and Erfurt plan to walk out from 2 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday as the Ver.di union pushes for higher wages.
“Because employers have shown no willingness to make a better offer, the extension of warning strikes has become necessary,” Ver.di board member Ute Kittel said in a statement on Monday. Talks are due to start again on Jan. 23.
