Germany -Strikes at Deutsche Post -April 22, 2013

Workers at Deutsche Post in Baden-Württemberg, Berlin, Hessen, North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland Palatinate have organised a warning strike on 17 April. Trade unions are demanding a wage increase of 6% for all workers, with a minimum increase of €140 to ensure the lowest paid workers receive a bigger pay hike. In the second round of collective bargaining negotiations that preceded the warning strikes, Deutsche Post stated it had no intention of giving into the trade union’s wage demands. On 22 April, trade union Ver.di announced the strike will be extended to all regions of the country.
