Strike over pay at Berlin airport grounds all flights
All flights have been canceled at Germany's Brandenburg airport in the capital Berlin, as staff went on strike in demand of better pay. About 300 flights were canceled on January 25, affecting nearly 35,000 passengers. The day-long strike was called by the Berlin-based trade union "Ver.di." The strike was to ramp up pressure over what the union said was insufficient progress in three parallel wage talks, with the overall goal of the strikes being to push negotiations forward.
