Due to the strike, the train had to switch to an emergency schedule: but at least it was largely stable on Monday. A spokesman for the group told BR that the group expects the same on Tuesday. However, personal unexpected failures cannot be ruled out. Before you start your journey it is a good idea to find out if the train is actually running.
The strike particularly affected IC and ICE connections: on long-distance transport, about 70 percent of trains are canceled. According to the Railways, there should be about 60 per cent failure on regional trains. On many routes, instead of a one-hour cycle, only a two-hour cycle is offered. The S-Pan Nornberg The train must run on all lines every hour, according to a spokesman. In Munich Run the S-Pan almost every second.
In many areas Upper bronchonia Rail traffic on Tuesdays is normal because private train companies such as “Alex” operate here and its employees are not affected by the strike. Unlike, for example, in அல்ல்கு According to PR information in Upper Franconia, none of the sender of the signal boxes has yet participated in the strike.
Complete failures in some ways
On Monday, passengers and commuters were badly affected by the strike on some routes. In Swapen A GDL spokesman confirmed on Monday afternoon that there had been complete failures on the route from Bobingon and Landsburg to Am Lech and Geldentorf to Buslo. Sometimes there is no alternative train service.
What should passengers consider
As trains are still packed, the train recommends reserving a seat before departure. She also asks you not to take bicycles with you. If you can postpone train travel, it’s easy: Strike-affected tickets can be used until September 4th. Rail connection is no longer available at savings rates. Alternatively, you can cancel your ticket for free during the strike, at least for long-distance transport. On local transportation, the following applies: If a train is canceled or delayed for more than 60 minutes due to a strike, you will receive a refund for the ticket. All other important information and tips for passengers during the strike are compiled here.
The freight strike will not affect the economy
In addition to passenger transport, freight transport is constantly on strike. However, this will not have a severe effect on the Bavarian economy because the strike is too short for it. At least that’s what the Bavarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BIHK) expects. At the request of the Bavarian Broadcasting Corporation, a spokesman for the BIHK said that particularly important items were prioritized by the railways, so they arrived at the right place at the right time. In addition, delays in rail freight have already been factored and planned. However, it cannot be ruled out that the economy will feel the effects of the strikes if train drivers stop working for long periods of time, for example a week.
Reiner Hoffmann, president of the German Confederation of Trade Unions, criticizes GDL boss Weselski’s strike tactics. “He wants to strengthen his position of power in the railways out of sheer corporate interests,” he said in an interview with Parish Rundfunk. Hoffman did not see the big difference between the railway offer and the demands of the GDL union, it was about the details. “In essence, Mr. Wesselski is concerned with ensuring the company’s own credibility. One can understand that. Please, not only on the backs of employees, a situation like this can lead to repeated separation of employees.”
According to Hoffman, it would not be wise for GDL boss Weselsky to compete with the Railway and Transport Union (EVG). “It is important that we represent the interests of all employees, not just individual professional groups,” Hoffman said, adding that he would like to speak with Silberbaugh, president of the German Beamon Association today. Hoffman expects Weselski to return to the negotiating table. He emphasized the benefits of an integrated union and a collective bargaining community, for example with the unions of the Civil Service Union. “We are negotiating together. And in these collective bargaining communities we have achieved good results for all employees over the last few decades. The only union that does not want to go this way is GDL, and I think that’s problematic.”
More strikes? So it continues now
Another strike cannot be ruled out. The current strike ends at 2 a.m. Tuesday through Wednesday. But the joint negotiation agreement between Deutsche Ban and GTL, the train drivers’ association, is not yet in sight. GDL boss Klaus Wesselski has already announced that a third strike cannot be ruled out. GDL’s Bavarian District President Uwe Böhm confirmed this to BR24: If the railways do not offer a new, better offer, another, even longer, strike is possible. Bernd Hartmann, chairman of the GDL local committee in Worcestershire and in charge of the Lower Franconia area, estimates that the current strike is not the last.
Wage disputes, among other things, make more money for employees. Both parties agree on the amount of future pay and salary: should be 3.2 percent higher. There is disagreement about the duration and duration of the increase. GDL also calls for a corona premium of 600 euros. The Railways promised such a premium, but apparently did not specify the amount of the premium yet.
