Only work 35 hours a week instead of 38. But earn just as much as before. Or even more so, because the employer raises salaries properly and compensates for inflation. This is how Germany’s train drivers imagine their working conditions in the near future – and are now on strike for the fourth time. From Tuesday evening in freight traffic and from Wednesday morning, 2 a.m., also in passenger traffic.
Last Friday, the railway made another offer to the GDL in the tariff dispute that has been going on since November. But the train drivers say that even with this new offer, the railway is still so far away from what they are demanding – so it makes no sense to talk to each other. The railway sees it the other way around: the GDL is the one that is exacerbating the conflict – while the railway is looking for a compromise.
Who is right and who could prevail in the end? Business editor Alexander Hagelüken talks about this in this episode.
