Lufthansa cabin crew rule out strikes for six weeks as mediation continues

FRANKFURT -- Lufthansa's cabin crew will not strike for the next six weeks while labor representatives and company executives engage in a mediation process, union representative Nicoley Baublies told Reuters on Sunday.

“Its unrealistic to think mediation lasts less than six weeks,” Baublies said.

Lufthansa and union representatives on Friday agreed to begin a formal mediation procedure set for next Wednesday, after the airline offered permanent contracts to some temporary cabin crew. The concessions by Lufthansa have made finding a solution a lot easier, Baublies said.

If talks fail, further industrial action is possible, but this is not on the radar screen at the moment, Baublies said.

Both sides now need to agree on the appointment of an independent mediator, a step which the UFO union head hopes to be completed by mid next week.
