Germany: 24-hour airstrike
Congestion at most German airports
A 24-hour strike affecting the transport sector is underway in Germany from midnight today. To cross their arms, in particular, the workers of almost all German airports located in the following regions: Hesse-Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate, Baden-Württemberg, Saxony and most of Bavaria. The only exceptions are the Berlin airports.
Workers' representatives from the Greens union and Dbb, which represents railway buying in particular, met today with German lander officials for a third round of wage negotiations. Indeed, the goal of mass mobilization is to obtain a wage increase commensurate with inflation. For the 2.5 million federal and municipal employees, an increase in wages of +10.5% is being requested.
The two parties are still distant, but an agreement is not excluded in the next few days. Meanwhile, the workers of public transport, maritime transport, long-distance railway lines and most of those who work in the regional train companies are also on strike. The strike is among the largest in memory from the 90s to today.
