Frankfurt – A huge boost at Gate 23: The Lufthansa technicians are fighting for their jobs!
Around 230 protested at noon with breathing masks and banners. On it read among other things: “Our father and friend loves his job – keep the line maintenance”.
Lufthansa Technik AG had announced that it would close aircraft maintenance at the Bremen, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt North, Hamburg, Hanover and Leipzig locations and downsize others. 780 of 1350 jobs are threatened!
Verdi Secretary Domenico Perroni, referring to the billions in government aid for the airline: “It was a mistake not to make keeping jobs a condition for aid payments.”
