The management of the national railway Deutsche Bahn wrote in an open letter that the train drivers union GDL was being ‘completely counter-factual and absurd’ in its public statements about the negotiations.

The management of the national railway Deutsche Bahn wrote in an open letter that the train drivers union GDL was being ‘completely counterfactual and absurd’ in its public statements about the negotiations. The union claimed that by calling for wage negotiations to be suspended ‘until the legal situation is clear’ DB was using the talks as a pretext to ask the government to intervene (see also the September Newsletter). GDL stated that if they didn’t receive a better offer from the rail operator over pay and working hours they would walk out again.
