    A KLM strike has caused dozens of flights to be delayed or cancelled at Schipol Airport in Amsterdam on Wednesday morning.

    After talks between KLM management and the local union FNV (Netherlands Trade Union Confederation) broke down, KLM staff at Schipol Airport held a strike that forced KLM to cancel 11 flights on Monday morning, reported DutchNews.

    The second strike has caused the Dutch airline to cancel six flights on Wednesday morning. The airline is warning passengers of delays.

    The strike, intended to last from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM on Wednesday, will cause problems with 62 flights, KLM told broadcaster RTL Nieuws.

    KLM staff are striking for an increase in pay.
