Right after a state court rejected Deutsche Bahn railways' attempt to win an injunction to stop an ongoing strike, the trade union GDL announced to cut short the planned four-day strike and return to work - in time for celebrations marking the 25th anniversary of the Berlin Wall's fall. Deutsche Bahn had asked for an injunction to halt the strike after the GDL rejected an offer of mediation. However, in two subsequent cases within 15 hours, the court upheld the union's right to strike.
