Cargolux makes deal with unions

December 2 - Cargolux has announced that a major breakthrough has been reached between the all-cargo carrier and two of the unions representing its crews - OGBL and LCGB - possibly ending a 15-month-long dispute that appeared to be headed toward a strike.

In an official statement, Cargolux said a new CWA had been formed for the airline's staff, which "clears the road to growth and financial sustainability". 

"The last intensive rounds of negotiations focused on crew related items," said the Luxembourg-based airfreight carrier. "The perseverance of the negotiating teams yielded a principle agreement with both unions on the new CWA terms that sends a strong signal on the company's commitment to job security for our staff and an increased support towards maintaining the competitiveness of Luxembourg as the prime air freight hub in Europe.

"The principles agreed today by all parties for the CWA, twinned with the decision to invest in new jobs, amongst other 100 new pilots and an additional aircraft for Luxembourg, pave the way for the realisation of Cargolux's vision to be the global cargo carrier of choice."

The agreement comes after an extended period of deadlock and a flurry of negotiating tactics in the last week of November.
