Lufthansa strikes major labor deal with pilots

In addition, pilots at Lufthansa and its subsidiaries will receive staggered pay increases of up to 10.3 per cent and a one-off payment of up to 1.8 monthly salaries for the period of May 2012 until June 2022.

Lufthansa's attempts to strike such a deal with the VC — which represents around 5,400 Lufthansa pilots — met strong resistance in recent years and led to several strikes, most recently in November 2016.
