Due to the announced warning strike at Berlin Airport, no passenger flights will be possible on Wednesday, 25 January 2023. The airport company officially informed its partners, such as the airlines, ground handling service providers, security companies and businesses located at the airport, about this in the evening.
Around 300 take-offs and landings with just under 35,000 passengers were originally planned for this day.
Affected passengers are asked to contact their airline for information on rebooking and alternative travel options.
The organizer of the strike is the ver.di trade union. She called on about 6,000 employees to participate in it – employees of the airport, aviation security service and ground handling.
The trade union wants a salary increase of 500 euros per month during the term of the collective agreement in twelve months. It is about extra payments for work at night and on vacation. In return, the employer is demanding significantly longer contract terms, and airport company employees are being offered tax-free lump sum payments of up to €2,000.
