BERLIN (AP) – A German trade union has expanded Tuesday a planned strike of security personnel at Frankfurt Airport with several other airports, including Hamburg.

News agency dpa reported that on Sunday the ver.di-bond announced the one-day outage in Hamburg, two days after the strike in Frankfurt, the busiest hub in Germany.

Internships are also expected on Tuesday at the smaller airports of Hanover, Bremen, Leipzig-Halle, Dresden and Erfurt.

The union wants to pay per hour for all employees who perform security checks, up to 20 euros ($ 23.10). Employers' Association BDLS says that in some cases the amount may go up to 30 percent.

Ver.di says it is waiting for employers to make a proposal for about 23,000 security staff.

Earlier strikes resulted in hundreds of cancellations of flights at the airports in Düsseldorf, Cologne-Bonn, Stuttgart and Berlin.
