FRANKFURT/MAIN dpa | The cabin Union Ufo, the flight attendants of Lufthansa subsidiary Germanwings to a three-day strike from next Monday (30.12.) called. The recusal should last up to and including new year's day, informed the Union on Friday in Frankfurt, by means of a Video message. Further strikes at Lufthansa group, will, at the earliest, after the 2. January announce, said Ufo Vice Daniel Flohr.

The subsidiary Germanwings's witnesses with approximately 30 flight for the eurowings brand, on the road, but should be prospectively merged on the Eurowings flight operation. The Management give the employees a clear perspective for the future of your flight operation, said Flohr. This lack of perspective shows itself in the collective issues at the negotiating table.

The Union had informed its members that it had been over the Christmas holidays further Attempts by the Mediator for short-term solutions. Also on Friday, it was on the phone, as we Heard, a lot of the Attempts are probably fruitless.

A Lufthansa spokesman had said on Thursday: "We look as Lufthansa constructively to the front." He added: "We are more interested in a large arbitration. Strikes are in our view not a solution.“ The Lufthansa look to the proposed mediation dates in January, added the spokesman.

In the conflict, it has already given you a warning strike for four-Lufthansa-daughters, as well as a two-day strike at the core company Lufthansa. Here, some 1,500 flights had been cancelled in November, with around 200 000 affected passengers.

Both sides have emphasized a comprehensive agreement with a variety of collective bargaining to seek more topics. On the day, had already been agreed in November, bilaterally, was not then come, but in the mutual distrust of each other. In the meantime, Lufthansa's personnel Director Bettina Volkens dismissed for a moderate course with the Ufo. The Union requires, among other things, a withdrawal of resignations and lawsuits against former and current members of the management Board, as well as a reappraisal of the violent conflict of the past few months.

The solution to the conflict proposed by the tariff expert of the Cologne Institute of German economy (IW), Hagen Lesch, the use of a mediator. "A lot of trust here on both sides seems obviously to have been lost," said Lesch, the düsseldorf-based Rheinische Post. "First of all, a Mediator must explore with the parties whether they want to negotiate seriously with each other," said Lesch. The Union need seems to be more certainty that the Lufthansa take you seriously as a negotiating partner. Only then will the actual mediation can begin.
