UFO MEMBERSHIP PAYS OFF
UFO MEMBERSHIP PAYS OFF
we are pleased to inform you about the case allowance, that has been negotiated with DLH within the scope of a so called differentiation clause. To begin with, one point is important for all persons not employed by Lufthansa: We will also negotiate differentiation clauses with other airlines in the forthcoming negotiations.
We will now answer the most important questions on the differentiation clause negotiated with Lufthansa:
In general all UFO members at LH are entitled every three years to an allowance of 250 EUR (gross) offered by the employer. The only thing you have to do is to fill in an application form via the UFO homepage.
In terms of payment Lufthansa, under the supervision of a data protection officer, will receive the application form only for the purpose of transferring the allowance. This info will not be attached and we will not pass on any of your data, neither to superiors nor to the flight company.
Applicants who are on parental leave, on unpaid leave or who are long-term sick cannot apply for the allowance until the conditions of entitlement have been met. Applications rejected by the LH must be resubmitted by the member.
The applications are always forwarded on the 15th of the month. Consequently members who apply before the 15th of a month will receive the allowance on their payslip on the 27th one month later.
If you work for Lufthansa, you can find the application form on our website. All you have to do is to type in your name and PK number in the secure member area (please do log in with your UFO data). When you submit your application form successfully you will receive a confirmation mail.
Incurred costs can be utilized for tax purposes due to the fact that they refer to work utensils. For this purpose you need to attach a form to your tax declaration. This form confirms that the acquired work utensils are needed for your job on board.
In general you can decide yourself where to spend your money. However, we have negotiated special conditions with the case store in Kelsterbach (www.airliner-shop.com). In this store you, as members of the aviation industry, can benefit not only from the special conditions. Above that you will receive only within the scope of the differentiation clause in terms of the case allowance an “organizer” or a shoe bag, when you buy the case in store or online. On top of that our UFO members will receive discounted special offers in the set. These sets are in line with the uniform regulations and can therefore be written off against tax in connection with the abovementioned confirmation.
However, because this is an exclusive offer, we kindly ask you to bring along and present our confirmation mail in printed or digital form when you buy the case in the shop.
Members of Lufthansa can find the application form after logging in above this article.
Enjoy your new case.
Always happy landings
