Hamburg (dpa) – Airbus Operations and Premium Aerotec employees went on a warning strike on Friday in the dispute over the future structure of the companies.

According to information, they were affected of IG Metall including the Airbus locations in Hamburg and Buxtehude as well as the Premium Aerotec location in Varel. Work should also be stopped in the morning at other locations. IG Metall district manager Daniel Friedrich and IG Metall board member Jürgen Kerner were expected to be the main speakers at rallies in Hamburg and Augsburg . As a hedge for around 13. 000 IG Metall demands a severance payment of three gross monthly salaries per year of employment with a base amount of 25. 000 euros should employees lose their jobs. In addition, a hardship rule for IG Metall members and two-year qualification measures should be agreed upon with continued payment of remuneration. IG Metall demands a term of twelve years for this regulation.

Airbus boss Guillaume Faury announced in April that at the beginning of 2022 Parts of Airbus Operations and large parts of Premium Aerotec merge into a new subsidiary. In addition, a new unit is to be created that will concentrate on the production of individual parts and small components. For this company, which is also to serve other customers, Airbus is striving to establish a connection with a “strong, external partner”.
