November 12 - After ongoing discussion and a preliminary agreement being made in July this year, the management of Cargolux Airlines and representatives from the Luxembourg based OGBL and LCGB met this week to continue negotiations for a collective work a

A principle agreement was reached with both unions and it will affect 750 ground staff - 62 percent of all employees in Luxembourg covered by the CWA.

All parties agreed to continue the discussions in order to find common ground on conditions related to pilots. Another meeting has been set to take place on November 30, the day on which the current CWA ends.

Cargolux has already stated that it will continue to honour the conditions of the current CWA with respect to current ground staff and existing pilots, only implementing changes relating to flight time limitations as a result of new European regulations.
