Berlin – Deutsche Bahn is on strike again. The train drivers' union GDL announced new strikes in Berlin on Friday.

The background to the strike is the ongoing tariff dispute between GDL and Deutsche Bahn. The train drivers' union is demanding, among other things, better pay and wage increases like in the public sector of around 3.2 percent. Deutsche Bahn wants to pay the required 3.2 percent, but only significantly later than requested by the union. (bs) * 24RHEIN is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA
