LUFTHANSA And UFO Enter Period Of Arbitration & Expect Long Term Labor Agreement - Airlines publisher
Dana Ermolenko
Airline: Lufthansa

Late last week, Lufthansa announced that it had agreed to enter arbitration with UFO.    For those of you not familiar with UFO, they are the union that represents Lufthansa’s cabin crews.

The new agreement promises labor peace between UFO and LH until June 30th at which point this arbitration agreement is set expire.    This latest agreement for arbitration is important to both sides because their previous ‘band-aid’ agreement expires on September 30.  Last year, LH and UFO reached agreements on several points, however there are still a few agreements that need to be reach in order to have a long term labor agreement in place.

From what I’ve read, it seems that both sides are optimistic that a deal will be reached and perhaps for the first time in a long time, we can book travel without the shadows of strikes in the background.
