VC union calls for Eurowings pilots to go on strike on Thursday

Accordingly, the collective agreement has existed since 2015 "without any adjustments". Since then, the workload has "increased significantly," argued VC. The union is demanding relief for employees - for example by reducing the maximum flight duty times and increasing the rest periods.

The union accused the Eurowings management of "lack of accommodation" and a lack of willingness to find a solution, so there was no choice but to call for a strike. "We regret the restrictions on passengers," the union said.

At the beginning of September, a pilots' strike at the parent company almost completely paralyzed Lufthansa's flight operations. It was about wage demands of the VC. Eurowings flights were not affected at the time.
