German air traffic control strike cancelled again
A threatened walk-out by air traffic control staff in Germany has been called off.
Members of the GdF union, which represents air traffic controllers in the country, were due to take part in a walk-out this morning between 6am and 12 noon local time in protest against pay proposals.
The strike was cancelled, however, after it was announced that fresh talks were underway between the union and the air traffic authority DFS.
It is the second time in a week that planned industrial action by the union has been cancelled.
Air traffic controllers were due to walk out on Friday, but were prevented by an injunction against the action filed by DFS.
