Germany -Warning strikes started in the metal sector -May 1, 2012

Trade union IG Metall started with a series of warning strikes. In the third round of negotiations for a new agreement in the metal sector the employers came with a proposal for a 3% pay increase (over a 14 months’ period). For IG Metall this is not an acceptable offer and a series of warning strikes has started all over the country.
