Germany -Care home workers maintain their strike -September 14, 2011

While visiting the strikers, ver.di union general secretary Frank Bsirske gave his support to care workers in Berlin as they showed their determination to continue their strike for a collective agreement despite intimidation from their employer. As reported earlier, the ver.di collective bargaining committee has demanded a framework agreement covering working time, shifts, shift pay and annual leave. Workers in other Alpenland homes outside Berlin are on better pay and conditions (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 4 July-August 2011).
