Germany - Week of action for better pay in church organisations - September 30, 2009

Services union ver.di organised a series of strikes and demonstrations between 22 and 25 September as part of a campaign to secure decent pay for decent work in church organisations. The union says that there have been no pay increases in the sector for over four years and that the main employers’ organisation, the VdDD, is pursuing a wage dumping policy to finance the expansion of its organisations. The union has also attacked church employers for arguing against their employees’ right to take strike action.
