Verdi trade union calls for public transport strike to take place in Hesse on October 6; adjust itineraries accordingly

TIMEFRAME expected from 10/6/2020, 12:00 AM until 10/6/2020, 11:59 PM (Europe/Berlin). COUNTRY/REGION Hesse

Event

The trade union Verdi, which represents 87,000 workers from 130 public transport companies across the country, has called on its members to stage a strike in Hesse on Tuesday, October 6, following unsuccessful negotiations over pay. Several cities are due to be impacted by the strike, including Frankfurt, Kassel, and Wiesbaden. The hours during which the walkout will take place will vary by city, but trams, buses, and the U-Bahn (metro) network are expected to be impacted in each city. Reports state that in Frankfurt the above services will be impacted from 03:00 (local time). The trade union believes that discrepancies in wages in different states have grown over the years and is calling for a nationwide standard pay for its workers.

Further nationwide disruptions to service related to the dispute may take place in the near term.

Advice

Those in the Hesse are advised to monitor local media sources in order to stay abreast of any developments regarding the strike-action and adjust their itineraries accordingly to account for the disruption to services.
