After months of negotiations, approximately nineteen thousand cabin crew members of Lufthansa have secured a new collective bargaining agreement. They will receive a 16.5% wage increase along with a one-time payment of €3,000.

The employees went on strike last month, leading to the cancellation of hundreds of flights and leaving thousands of passengers stranded. “We can now be very satisfied with the outcome,” says a negotiator from the Unabhängige Flugbegleiter Organisation (UFO).

In late March, the Verdi union and Lufthansa reached a preliminary agreement on a new collective bargaining agreement for the airline’s ground staff, averting a potential strike around Easter.

Additionally, an agreement was reached on a new collective bargaining agreement for approximately 25,000 airport security personnel in Germany. Airport security personnel have staged multiple work stoppages in recent times, along with employees in other parts of the aviation industry.

The deal for Lufthansa’s stewardesses and stewards marks the end of several major labor disputes in the German aviation sector. Earlier, a multi-year wage agreement was reached for the airline’s pilots.
