Lufthansa attendants accept pay settelement
Tuesday - 12/11/2012, 4:44am EST
BERLIN (AP) - A union representing flight attendants at Lufthansa says its members have voted to accept a pay deal with the airline _ averting the possibility of strikes during the holiday season.
The UFO union said Tuesday that 85 percent of members who participated in a ballot on last month's arbitration settlement voted to accept it.
The settlement gives attendants a pay raise that fell short of their demands but included a no-layoff guarantee until the end of 2014, among other concessions by the two sides.
Lufthansa is struggling to compete against European budget carriers and government-owned airlines from the Persian Gulf. Germany's biggest airline and the union took their dispute to arbitration in September after attendants staged a series of short-term work stoppages that caused the cancellation of hundreds of flights.
