The security workers in Frankfurt went on strike at 2 am Friday (0100 GMT) and were to remain off work until 11 pm on a warning strike to press their demands for an hourly wage of 16 euros ($ 22), reported the news agency dpa. Employers are offering between 10 to 13 euros per hour.

By midmorning 41 flights had been canceled and the airport reported long lines of check-in.

Short strikes are a common practice in Germany for unions to exert pressure on employers. The two sides are scheduled to negotiate together on March 5.
