Hundreds of Lufthansa flights in Germany have been canceled this week due to strike action from Lufthansa ground workers at various German airports. The airports that have been affected by the strike action are the Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich, Berlin, and Dusseldorf airports. Workers are taking strike action to demand higher wages, and currently, the union and Lufthansa management are in disagreement over wage increases. The union is seeking a 12.5% increase in wages, and Lufthansa management has stated that negotiations between the parties have only recently begun, and it is too early for workers to go on strike. The timing of the strike action aligns with various other strikes in the German transportation industry, as rail workers and local transportation workers have also walked out of their jobs this week. The widespread strike action has significantly disrupted transportation services in Germany.
