Germany -Deutsche Telekom workers out on warn strikes -March 29, 2012

Verdi organised a strike on Thursday 29 March with more than 10,000 workers engaged across Germany as the wage talks failed to reach an agreement. The management so far has not come up with acceptable proposals according to the union. The union demands wage increases of 6.5% for the workforce (of around 85,000 workers). Further demands aim to improve the situation of the lowest wage earners (including for apprentices a monthly increase of €70).
