Flights hit by German strikes

The Ver.di union says it is holding the one-day warning strike to pressure employers ahead of a third round of negotiations for 2.1 million federal and municipal employees. The union is pushing for a 100 euro (£83) one-off payment and a 3.5% wage increase and says it has not yet received a counter offer.
Ver.di says the strikes, also at Hamburg, Cologne, Stuttgart and Hannover, affect ground services, service, maintenance and other workers.
