Strike notice states
Frankfurt Airport Strike:-Start of shift till 3pm. Firemen striking at 8am. That would suggests airport will be closed. Demonstrations around Frankfurt Airport are planned - i.e. roads blocked to terminals.

This strike may effect local public transport workers, check your rail or bus driver is working

Verdi union is looking for a 6% pay raise for it’s union members

Likely to be the first of many strikes through out the summer. Perhaps change your flight for the day before. You will be delayed, cancelled or brought forward. 

Pay attention to the news as German journalists threaten strike action. No date set, but you can play your cards that it will likely coincide with a transportation strike.

Knock-on effect - will cause domino effect around the network worldwide. 
Are you coming from a non EU country? Don’t get stuck in German international arrivals terminal, have a German visa so you can stay in a hotel instead of a cot in the terminal.

Lastly Belgium air traffic control are still playing up - controllers calling in sick. Charleroi and Brussels airport. Greece new strikes on the horizon for this and other strikes that will annoy you to no end
Chin up, call your airline. One more thing French air traffic control strike this week along with French national rail strike.

Negotiations with flight attendants union and pilot union are going nowhere. I'd be worrying if I had a booking with Lufthansa over the Christmas and New Year season.
Change to another airline, incur any penalties. You just don't want to deal with this stress over the holiday's. Whatever you do, don't choose Air France or Portuguese national airline TAP is prone to strike action over the holidays. Airline is under new management.
