ver.di is calling on the around 450 cabin crew members at easyjet Germany in Berlin to go on warning strike on Friday between 5:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. Passengers must expect numerous flight cancellations and delays.
The background to the warning strike is the ongoing negotiations for the employees wage-CLA of the cabin crew members. „The employers have not presented us with a new offer to increase remuneration and thus provoked the warning strike themselves,“ says Holger Rößler, ver.di negotiator at easyjet.
In the current collective bargaining negotiations, ver.di is demanding compensation for the current price increases, but at least a 5 percent increase in remuneration and a one-off payment in the amount of a monthly salary including shift and sector allowance. The term of the collective agreement should be until December 31, 2022.
„The exorbitantly increased prices and the large additional burden on board due to the chaotic restart phase of the entire industry show that our demands are more than justified. It is high time that the cabin crews were rewarded for this,” demands Rößler.
ver.di is the trade union responsible for all easyjet business areas in Germany. These include cabin, cockpit, technology and administration. The Berlin location is the only remaining base in Germany.
There is currently no new hearing date.
