GDL votes for strike action

German train drivers have voted in favour of strike action.

09 March 2011

Strike negotiations could soon be on the cards for German train drivers after a union voted in favour of industrial action.

More than 90 per cent of the members of GDL favoured escalating their efforts in protesting against unfair pay.

This follows rolling regional strikes, which have been taking place since the end of last month.

However, these short-term disruptions are now set to be replaced with full walkouts as GDL attempts to prompt a contract negotiation with rail bosses.

Union head Claus Weselsky recently told a news conference that the union will soon introduce the "next step" in its conflict.

"The management must come up with a reasonable offer on which to negotiate," he said.

Last month, strike negotiations took place to avert planned industrial action on the London Underground, after the RMT Union took issue with the sacking of two drivers.

This meant that a walkout planned for Sunday February 20th was called off.
