In the collective bargaining dispute in the public sector, the Verdi union has again called for warning strikes next week – this time it is about garbage disposal, bus companies and hospitals, among other things. In Lower Saxony and Bremen, work stoppages are also threatening at the airports, Verdi announced on Thursday. Collective bargaining got stuck there.

On Tuesday, the bus and train services of the Hannoversche Verkehrsbetriebe √ústra are to be on strike. In addition, all employees of the public service of the federal government and the municipalities in Hanover and the region are called to strike, including administration and daycare centers. In addition, the employees of the Klinikum Region Hannover are called to protest on Tuesday and Wednesday. The employees of the waste disposal company aha will temporarily go on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday in Hanover and the region, so that garbage will be left behind, as Verdi said in a statement.

At the post office in Lower Saxony and Bremen, the warning strikes have been suspended for the time being, although a majority of union members voted in favor of an indefinite strike. The reason given was that the postal employers had offered further negotiations for Friday and Saturday.

Verdi and the civil servants’ association dbb are demanding 10.5 percent more income for the approximately 2.5 million employees in the public sector, but at least 500 euros more per month. In the second round of negotiations there was no rapprochement.
