Germany - Unions highlight work of regional government employees January 24, 2011

The ver.di services union and dbb civil service union are co-operating in a week of activities to highlight the work of regional government employees. In the week of 24-28 January there will be a series of events in major cities that will focus on different occupations – such as hospital and college employees, teachers and tax workers. The unions want to emphasize the important services provided by these workers and the challenging working conditions they face. The unions want a 3% pay increase plus a flat-rate rise of €50 for 585,000 workers in 14 of Germany’s 16 Länder (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 3 December 2010).
