Lufthansa union approves possible strike10 March 2009
The Ufo trade union that represents staff at German airline Lufthansa voted Monday in favour of a possible open-ended strike to press demands for a 15-percent pay increase.
The vote was approved by a 96 percent majority according to a statement posted on the union’s Internet site but only backed the principle of a strike, not immediate action.
Ufo repeated recently that it favoured talks with Lufthansa to a walk-out.
