Discover Airlines Pilot and Cabin Crew to go on Strike on Friday

The Cockpit Association and the flight attendant union UFO are calling on their members flying with Discover Airlines to stop work on Friday, January 26

Our colleagues at Discover have now shown a lot of patience, but unfortunately they have to realize that the new year will continue as the old one ended: we are being held back endlessly. Unfortunately, the management is driving us into the ultima ratio scenario of industrial action, although we would have wished it to be different in the interests of both the passengers and the employees. Our hope now rests on the company – the sooner the employer shows a serious willingness to reach an agreement, the sooner we can put the collective bargaining dispute back where it belongs – at the collective bargaining table,” says Marcel Gröls, chairman of collective bargaining policy at the VC.

“For a good two years we have been trying persistently in various ways to enter into collective bargaining with the employer for the cabin crew, but we have consistently been rebuffed. At the same time, Discover presents itself as a hip start-up that believes that employees accept far below-average working conditions and inadequate pay simply because of a great spirit. The fact is, the Discover cabin does a fantastic job, but it can barely pay the rent. On top of that, reasonably reliable life planning is practically impossible under the prevailing working conditions. This has to end. You finally need sufficient and predictable free time as well as a salary that you can actually live on,” adds Harry Jaeger, head of collective bargaining policy at UFO.
