On March 13, all commercial flights departing from Berlin Airport are canceled due to a ground staff strike. The action is carried out by the trade union Ver.di, demanding higher wages amid rising costs of living, according to Bloomberg. March 14, 2023 0 2 min

“The strike of the airport workers will once again send a clear signal that we will pursue our justified demand for a substantial wage increase”, says Lars Stubbe, spokesman for Ver.di in Hamburg.
Today, another strike took place in a series of protests related to rising food and energy prices, which led to a decrease in income and living standards. The union is demanding a 10.5% wage increase for all public sector workers in Germany, at least 500 euros per month, but negotiations are not successful.
This is far from the first union strike:
On February 27, most flights were canceled at the regional airports of Düsseldorf and Cologne-Bonn.
February 17 became the airports of Frankfurt am Main, Munich and Hamburg.
On March 3, at the call of Ver.di, about 15,000 public transport workers went on strike in regions such as Baden-Württebmerg, Hesse, Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saxony.
This is not expected to be the last strike, so flight delays and cancellations will continue for some time in Germany and other European countries.
