Employees of the BVG public transportation company in Berlin plan to launch a strike from 03:00 to 12:00 (local time) on Friday, February 15, to denounce perceived poor working conditions and to demand bonuses. The strike will affect all U-Bahn services, including bus, tram, and subway services. Widespread transportation disruptions are to be expected throughout Berlin if the strike proceeds as planned.
Furthermore, a related rally is expected to take place in front of the BVG headquarters on Holzmarktstrasse on Friday. According to organizers, at least 4000 participants are expected to attend the rally.
Travelers in Berlin are advised to confirm their travel itineraries and to budget extra time to reach their destinations. Exercise a high level of vigilance in affected areas, avoid all demonstrations, and follow all official instructions issued by relevant authorities.
