POTSDAM (dpa-AFX) – The people in Germany have to be prepared for increased warning strikes in the public service of the federal states. Verdi boss Frank Werneke announced on Tuesday in Potsdam that the outstanding payments would be increased noticeably. The second round of negotiations in the current collective bargaining dispute over the income of more than one million state employees, for example in schools, daycare centers and the police, had come to an end. The unions initially did not disclose where and when employees would go to work.
The chairman of the Beamtenbunds dbb, Ulrich Silberbach, said at the end of the two-day second round: “Those were two lost days and if the finance ministers of the federal states continue like this, they will drive the negotiations completely up against the wall.” Before the most recent state collective bargaining agreement two years ago, schools, vocational schools, state clinics, daycare centers and offices were partially paralyzed with warning strikes. Negotiations are to be continued in Potsdam at the end of November./sik/bw/DP/eas
