BERLIN (Reuters) – German trade union Verdi has called on ground staff at Deutsche Lufthansa (ETR:LHAG) to go on strike on Wednesday amid a wage dispute, it said in a statement on Monday.

Verdi had last month demanded a 9.5% pay rise, or at least 350 euros ($368) more per month, for around 20,000 workers at Lufthansa units including Lufthansa AG Boden, Lufthansa Technik and Lufthansa Cargo.
