Germany -Walk out at Deutsche Bank subsidiary -April 20, 2015

Industrial action as workers demand better and extended protection against dismissal, plus a 5% pay increase.

Industrial action hit the bank branches of Postbank, a subsidiary of Deutsche Bank, in the eastern states of Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, Thuringia and parts of Brandenburg, with many remaining shut. The workers demand better and extended protection against dismissal, according to trade union Ver.di. Many Postbank employees fear being laid off if Deutsche Bank decides to sell the retail banking unit. The unions are demanding protection from dismissal for all of the 9,500 staff until 2020, plus a 5% pay increase. Employers have rejected the demands, which led to the decision to go on strike.
