This labor dispute is unfortunate. So far, both sides not talk to each other. The negotiation opponent signs the previous Meeting so that the other person says "nothing" or "just a piece of paper is sufficient, in". For Verdi has instigated the second warning strike.
only the people in the suburbs are Made of these Thursday. In the downtown there was, however, so far no problems. The U-Bahn, S-Bahn, and trams were more crowded than usual, the wars.
the strike, suffer so, especially the people with little money and without a car in a large housing estate in the outskirts of life, in the only with the Bus. Low-income people. A Union wants?
