Berlin airports to be hit by strikes on Friday

Flights in and out of Berlin's airports Tegel and Schönefeld are likely to face delays and flight cancellations as ground staff go on strike in a dispute over pay.
Trade union Verdi announced walkouts at Tegel and Schönefeld airports from 4 a.m on Friday to 5 p.m. on Saturday local time.

Verdi is pushing for an hourly pay increase and better working hours for its members, arguing that their workload is increasing with the growing number of passengers and a greater focus on security.

The union also wants more opportunities for professional advancement for ground staff.
