About 600 flights have been
grounded in German airports as a result of strike embarked upon by security
staff over pay dispute.

The strike centres on airports in
western Germany: Düsseldorf (the country’s third-largest), Cologne-Bonn and
Stuttgart. In Düsseldorf about 60,000 passengers are affected, with two-thirds
of flights cancelled, ARD TV reports.

The Verdi union wants a pay rise to €20
(£18; $23) per hour for security staff, from the present rate of €17.
ARD says many travellers had time to
make alternative arrangements, as the strike had been announced in advance.
Security staff are reported to be very angry over their working conditions.

German media say 350 out of 570 planned
flights have been cancelled in Düsseldorf; in Cologne 130 out of 200 flights
are cancelled, and in Stuttgart 142 out of 270.

About 50 flights were cancelled when
security staff went on strike at Berlin’s Tegel and Schönefeld airports on
