Union calls on Lufthansa pilots to strike in solidarity for Discover

The Verband Cockpit union has called on its members to go on a three-day strike from Saturday to Monday to force a first collective agreement at the airline, which was founded in the summer of 2021. The pilots have already staged a five-hour warning strike and two regular strikes since December. Within the Lufthansa Group, the VC has established a joint collective bargaining commission for the German companies.

According to its own information, Discover already pays higher pilot salaries, but it agreed these with the works council and not with the union. The new salaries correspond exactly to the demands of the VC, as both sides have confirmed. The union wants to continue the industrial action, although its material demands initially appear to have been largely implemented. The VC criticized that a works agreement does not have the legal quality and security of a collective agreement with the union. In addition, the company demanded a so-called social partnership charter as a prerequisite, which restricts the union’s fundamental rights.
