Berlin – Deutsche Bahn, Germany’s largest railroad operator, and a trade union representing train drivers agreed on Thursday to raise salaries to end a series of strikes that confused commuters and vacationers during the summer. Stated.
The GDL union said it secured a guarantee on the pension, an increase of about 3.3% over 32 months, and two bonus payments of 800-1,000 euros ($ 940-1,180) to each member during the period.
Union leader Klaus Weselsky called the deal a “good compromise” for both sides.
The deal was made possible with the help of two governors after three strikes by GDL members in recent months.
The last strike in early September lasted a week and affected many travelers returning from summer vacation.
