After months of negotiations, the German railway operator and the GDL railway union reached an agreement. Deutsche Bahn pledged to raise employee salaries by 3.3%. In addition, the operator will pay them one-time premiums in connection with the pandemic totaling up to one thousand euros.
Railway workers went on strike three times in the midst of the summer holidays, causing a lot of inconvenience to residents of Germany and tourists.
Meanwhile, it became known that another large trade union - EVG - is preparing to present the concern with a list of its demands.
