10 JAN 2019: Following a strike on Monday by security staff at Berlin's two airports that caused severe disruption to flights, a German labour union is calling on security staff at three German airports to stage a strike today amid ongoing pay negotiations.  

The ver.di union said Wednesday that it's urging workers to join a one-day walkout that is likely to cause disruptions for airline passengers.

The strike will affect airports in Duesseldorf, Koeln-Bonn and Stuttgart.

The union wants hourly pay for all workers conducting security checks to rise to ¬€20 ($30.50). The employers association BDLS says this could amount to an increase of 30 percent in some cases.
