BERLIN | Union calls strike by security staff at Berlin airports
BERLIN— Jan 05, 2019—A German labor union is calling on security staff at Berlin’s two airports to stage a strike Monday amid ongoing pay negotiations.
The ver.di union said Saturday it’s urging workers to join a four-hour walkout starting at 5 a.m. (0400 GMT) that is likely to cause disruptions for airline passengers.
The strike will affect both the capital’s Tegel and Schoenefeld airports.
Ver.di says employers “provoked” the strike by offering a pay increase of 2 percent over two years.
