German rail strikes to hit commuters from Tuesday

BERLIN, Oct 25 (BestGrowthStock) – Strike action on Germany’s
national rail network will affect millions of commuters from
Tuesday morning, unions said on Monday without clarifying which
regions will be worst hit.

Unions Transnet and GDBA said the action will continue
during the week to back their demand that national operator
Deutsche Bahn and private operators improve their offers in wage
negotiations that have reached an impasse.

“It cannot be allowed for colleagues to receive up to 20
percent less pay for the same work, especially when the private
operators use this type of wage dumping as a competitive edge to
win contracts,” the unions said in a statement.
