Lufthansa and Flight Attendants Agree on Deal
Lufthansa and the Independent Flight Attendants' Union (UFO) have agreed on a package of measures amounting to more than half a billion euros to counter the economic effects of the COVID-19 crisis.
The package of measures includes the suspension of pay increases, a reduction in flying hours with a corresponding reduction in pay and temporary reductions in contributions to the company pension scheme.
Additionally, both parties have agreed on a package of voluntary measures and severance programs. These include unpaid leave, voluntary measures to further reduce working hours, and the subsidized, early transfer to a company pension scenario.
With the crisis package, the company will be able to avoid layoffs for the 22,000 cabin staff of Deutsche Lufthansa AG during the crisis.
