Lufthansa reaches pay deal with ground staff

Lufthansa signed an agreement on Saturday with services union Verdi on pay for about 33,000 ground staff in a bid to avert further strike action.

The agreement includes a one-off payment of €2,250 per full-time employee and a 2.2% pay rise.

The deal includes airport staff as well as catering, IT, freight and maintenance workers, the BBC reported.

But the German airline is yet to reach an agreement with cabin crew, who called the week-long industrial action in early November, and pilots.

Lufthansa has been in pay and pension disputes with staff as it looks to cut costs to compete with budget airlines and Gulf carriers.

The carrier plans a meeting on Wednesday with flight attendants’ union UFO, the cockpit pilots’ union, and Verdi to tackle the long-running dispute.
