Strike at Berlin airports
Berlin's airport authorities are recommending passengers to take an early look at the status of their flights. The strike is scheduled to begin on 10 March, at 4 in the morning (local time), and hold until 11 in March, at 5 in the morning.
The Verdi union said this one-day strike was inevitable. The employers refused to comply with the union's demands and did not want to negotiate based on them.
The ground staff, which is made up of over 2000 employees, wants better working conditions and a bespoke reward. 98.6% of them agreed to the strike tomorrow.
