Germany -Pay deal at Deutsche Bahn -March 26, 2013

The transport union EVG concluded a collective agreement at Deutsche Bahn that could give a wage increase of 6% overall and a further 1% rise in employer contributions to occupational pension schemes.  A 3% increase will be effective from 1 May 2013, followed by a further 3% rise from 1 April 2014. Rail workers will also receive a one-off social component payment for the January to April 2013 period. Earlier this month workers had held short strikes during morning rush hour in reaction to a low wage offer by the railway company in the negotiations. The unions had demanded a 6.5% wage increase.
