Germany -Dispute in childcare continues -August 12, 2015

The family ministry has called for local governments to use the summer to resolve the conflict on pay and working conditions with day-care and social workers so that there is no threat of further strikes. Trade unions Ver.di and GEW rejected a suggested compromise from the mediator appointed to end rolling strikes that have hit much of the country. The mediator had suggested pay increases of between 2 and 4.5% for day-care and social workers in a proposal at the end of June. While union negotiators present at the talks accepted the deal by a large majority, union members rejected it when they were polled.
