Germany: Three thousand Airbus metal workers strike over job cuts

Over 3,000 members of the Industrial Union of Metalworkers (IG Metall) went on an hour-long strike on Thursday, demonstrating in front of the Airbus factory in Hamburg, a key site for the development and engineering of aircraft.

The strike action follows changes made by Airbus's parent company the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company (EADS) and a planned restructuring announced in July, effective from January 1 2014.

The proposed adjustments could mean units of Airbus factories are sold off and up to 40,000 workers could lose their jobs. EADS has said it wants to combine its defence and space subsidiaries and potentially save €690m ($937m) from the move.

Other strike actions are taking place on Thursday across Germany at Airbus factories, including in Bremen and Munich.
