Germany -Solidarity action with Autogrill workers -May 20, 2014

Since 16 April 2014 workers at Autogrill service stations in Hörselgau and Eisenach (Thuringia) and in Donautal, Rhön and Greding (Bavaria) have been taking indefinite strike action. The aim is to conclude a standard general wage agreement with better working conditions.

Since 16 April 2014 workers at Autogrill service stations in Hörselgau and Eisenach (Thuringia) and in Donautal, Rhön and Greding (Bavaria) have been taking indefinite strike action. The aim is to conclude a standard general wage agreement with better working conditions. They work in three shifts and on weekends, but earn just over 7 euro an hour. The international trade union movement backed up the demands with an online campaign. Autogrill requested to stop the campaign, threatening legal measures. But the struggle for a collective agreement goes on. The Group, which has its head office in Milan, is the world's biggest provider of catering and retail services for travellers. It has approximately 75,000 employees at 1,200 locations in 43 countries.
