Eurowings Pilots Announce Strike Action

DALLAS – Eurowings (EW) pilots have announced a one-day strike tomorrow, October 6, after talks with the pilots’ union Vereinigung Cockpit (VC) failed.

The union is looking at easing the workload of its members at the German low-cost carrier by reducing maximum flight hours and increasing rest periods. Ten rounds of negotiations have been entered into but subsequently failed. Pilots had voted in favour of strike action back in August with 97.7%.

The airline claims that the pilots demands would force it to cancel around 20% of its current flying schedule. Photo: Eurowings.
