No departures at BER next Monday due to Verdi's call for a strike

Arriving flights at BER could also be affected by the warning strike of cancellations and changes, the airport warned. He also provides information about the impact of the strike on his website and social media.

Verdi had previously called for strikes by security personnel at numerous other German airports for the coming Monday at the capital's airport. Aviation security workers who work in passenger screening and personnel and goods screening are being asked to stop working full-time, the union said. Delays and flight cancellations must be expected.

In the past few days there had already been strikes at the airports in Hamburg, Cologne/Bonn and Düsseldorf as well as Stuttgart and Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden. Verdi wants to ensure that employers increase the time premiums for night, Saturday, Sunday and public holiday work and pay better overtime.

Collective bargaining on April 11 and 12 had not resulted in an agreement. The next round of negotiations is scheduled for April 27th and 28th. Verdi asked employers to then "submit a negotiable offer and not continue to play for time". Otherwise there is a risk of "further strikes in air traffic in May and at Pentecost".
