    Berlin airports prepare for ground staff strike this afternoon

    Ground crew will strike at Berlin’s two airports today in a dispute over pay, according to Union officials.

    The strike, which the Verdi union referred to as a “warning”, is scheduled to last from 4pm to 10pm and is expected to cause major disruption.

    Lufthansa, Germany’s largest airline, warned passengers that up to 30 flights could be cancelled while Air Berlin, the second largest, are expecting delays and possible cancellations at Berlin-Tegel airport.

    Verdi called the strike ahead of new pay talks on Friday. The union wants a salary increase of one euro per hour. Ground crew are currently paid €11 per hour.
