汉莎航空将对德国员工进行强制裁员

汉莎航空将对德国员工进行强制裁员

By David Meyer 2020年08月07日
汉莎航空预测航空业要到2024年才会恢复到疫情前的水平。

汉莎航空预计,航空业未来几年的前景不容乐观,因此他们计划削减开支。

该公司在一份声明中表示,“这些措施只能弥补一部分销售额下滑带来的影响。”汉莎航空预测航空业要到2024年才会恢复到疫情前的水平,因此该公司打算在德国推行强制裁员计划。

“公司的目标是尽可能避免裁员,”汉莎航空表示,“但是就目前航空运输市场发展情况与必要协议谈判进度来看,这一目标很难实现,裁员是不可避免的。”

由于工会谈判正在进行中,所以还无法确定汉莎航空计划裁员的2.2万人中有多少人来自德国。

本周四,汉莎航空公司发言人向《财富》表示,公司已经与机舱乘务员的工会达成协议,该协议需要得到工会成员的批准才能生效。此外,公司与飞行员和地面工作人员工会的谈判仍在进行中。

“谈判肯定会继续,” Verdi工会的谈判代表米拉·纽梅尔告诉《财富》,他还补充道,工会与汉莎航空将于周五再次举行会议。

Verdi工会认为,汉莎航空的德国员工希望得到保护,避免裁员。它还指出,关于减薪问题,汉莎航空一直在拖延谈判。

“我们必须有一个公平的对话,”纽梅尔表示。

汉莎航空的发言人并不这么认为,他说:“我们需要所有团体的措施,目前已经有可能与机舱工作人员达成协议。”

欧洲航空业受到新冠疫情冲击尤为严重,因为3月份的假期与商务旅行几乎停止。此后,很多航空公司宣布裁员,包括英国航空公司、瑞安航空公司和法国航空公司等。

“无法快速恢复”

汉莎航空首席执行官卡斯滕·斯波尔在一份声明中表示,“特别是长途航线,不会很快恢复至疫情前的水平。”

“今年上半年,我们通过严格的成本管理以及汉莎技术公司与货运航空公司的营收,抵消了新冠疫情的影响。我们正从旅游业复苏中获益,特别是我们提供的欧洲之翼和雪绒花旅游。”他表示,“尽管如此,我们仍将不遗余力地进行业务重组。”

汉莎航空是第一家在应对疫情危机时缩减机队规模的大型航空公司。早在今年4月初,该公司就宣布了相关举措。

本周四,该公司表示,将永久停飞100架飞机,但仍然希望在2024年提供与疫情爆发前相同的运力水平。

“我们确信整个航空业必须适应新常态,” 斯波尔表示。“这次疫情让我们的行业得以重新调整改进:质疑现状,并以可持续和负责任的方式创造价值,而不是‘不惜任何代价追求增长’。”(188金宝搏 下载)

Lufthansa sees no bright horizons in the near-term future of aviation—and is increasingly looking to cuts as a result.

"These measures were only partially able to compensate for the decline in sales," it said in a statement. And, with Lufthansa now predicting that the aviation slump will last into 2024, it intends to move forward with compulsory redundancies in Germany—something it says it was hoping not to do.

"The Group's objective was to avoid redundancies as far as possible," it said. "Against the background of the market developments in global air traffic and based on the course of the negotiations on necessary agreements with the collective bargaining partners, this goal is no longer realistically within reach for Germany either."

Because of ongoing negotiations with various unions, it is not yet possible to say how many of Lufthansa's planned 22,000 job cuts will take place in Germany.

A company spokesperson told Fortune Thursday that it has reached an agreement with the cabin crew staffers' union, which the union's members still need to approve before it can take effect. Talks with pilot and ground-staff unions are still underway.

"The negotiations will definitely continue," Mira Neumaier, a negotiator for the Verdi union, which represents ground staff, told Fortune, adding that the union and Lufthansa will be meeting again Friday.

Verdi argues that Lufthansa's German workers expect protection from redundancies, particularly as the airline is the beneficiary of a €9 billion bailout by the German state. It also claims Lufthansa has been stalling the talks on the issue of pay cuts, which the union says will hit lowest-paid workers the hardest.

"There has to be a fair conversation," Neumaier said.

Lufthansa's spokesperson disagreed, saying: "We need measures from all of our groups. We saw it's possible with the cabin staff."

Europe's commercial airline sector has been hit particularly hard by the coronavirus outbreak as holiday and business travel ground nearly to a halt in March. The number of airlines to announce job cuts since then is a long one. It includes British Airways, Ryanair, and Air France, to name a few.

“No quick recovery”

Carsten Spohr, Lufthansa's CEO, said in the carrier's statement that "especially for long-haul routes there will be no quick recovery."

"We were able to counteract the effects of the coronavirus pandemic in the first half of the year with strict cost management as well as with the revenues from Lufthansa Technik and Lufthansa Cargo. And we are benefiting from the first signs of recovery on tourist routes, especially with our leisure travel offers of the Eurowings and Edelweiss brands," he said. "Nevertheless, we will not be spared a far-reaching restructuring of our business."

Lufthansa was the first big airline to embrace a smaller-is-better stance in response to the coronavirus pandemic, announcing all the way back in early April that it would reduce its fleet size.

On Thursday, it said the fleet would see a permanent reduction of 100 planes—despite which, it still wants to offer the same capacity in 2024 that it did before the crisis hit.

"We are convinced that the entire aviation industry must adapt to a new normal," Spohr said. "The pandemic offers our industry a unique opportunity to recalibrate: to question the status quo and, instead of striving for ‘growth at any price,’ to create value in a sustainable and responsible way."
