Request for Mutual Assistance for VC - Lufthansa

September 01, 2022

Dear Colleagues, 

Vereinigung Cockpit (VC – ALPA Germany) are requesting Mutual Assistance on behalf of Lufthansa and Lufthansa Cargo pilots. 

IFALPA has been informed by VC, that pilots in Lufthansa and Lufthansa Cargo have been negotiating a new Collective Labour Agreement for several months but have not been able to reach an agreement in relation to remuneration. As informed, more than 97% of Lufthansa pilots voted in favour of taking industrial action in the form of a strike for all departing flights from Germany, starting on 2 September 2022 at 0001 LT. 

On behalf of the Lufthansa and Lufthansa Cargo pilots, VC is requesting the Mutual Assistance as outlined below as per the IFALPA Industrial Manual and further requests letters of support for their pilot group to be sent to the attention of Marcel Gröls, Head of Industrial Affairs, [email protected] 

  1. Ban on Wet Leasing IND 2.4.1
  2. Freeze in Capacity IND 2.4.2
  3. Assistance to Pilots Stranded Away from their Home Base IND 2.4.5
  4. IFALPA Submissions and Representation IND 2.4.7 

An expanded explanation of the Mutual Assistance requested can be found in the appendix attached to this Request or can be found in the IFALPA Industrial Manual, Chapter 2. 

VC will keep IFALPA and its Member Associations informed of any further developments. 

In Unity,
