Germany -Day care workers demand higher pay grade -April 28, 2015

Pre-school teachers strike over low pay and the underpaid occupation, negotiations not led to a result.

Over 400 kindergartens remained closed as pre-school teachers went on strike over low pay. Trade union Ver.di and the kindergartens are in negotiations over a collective agreement. Ver.di has demanded the teachers be paid in a higher pay grade, which would imply a pay rise (by 10%). The strikes have received political and public support as the teachers point out that the occupation is underpaid. The talks so far have not led to a result, leading in numerous States to warning strike and closed day care centres.
