Frankfurt Labor Issues Could Affect ATC

The strike by ramp workers at Frankfurt Airport, which began last week, continues to deteriorate and could soon become a complete work stoppage at Europe’s third-busiest hub. The GdF union representing ground workers, has asked its members in the control tower to walk out Wednesday morning in sympathy with the 200 union members already walking a picket line. The German ATC authority is attempting to organize a legal solution to block any controller job actions.
