Berlin's transport system is at the Limit, the passengers groan: Berlin's governing mayor, Michael Müller, the SPD, has now allocated significant against BVG Boss Sigrid Nikutta, and of Berlin's transport chief planner, Senator Regine Günther (independent Green). The Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe (BVG) were poorly organized, it's reliability and planning is lacking. And Berlin is absolutely no perspective that it could be better. Müller criticized in the Cabinet meeting, the reports of participants at least agreed that the transport and environment Senator Regine Günther (independent, Green).
The day after the Verdi trade Union in jumped the two head inside. "Without question, the Performance of the BVG is, in spite of the great efforts of the employees, currently flawed, and a solution does not seem to be short-term in perspective," writes Jeremy Arndt, the trade Union Secretary of Verdi for the BVG in charge. Arndt: "It is annoying that the mayor wants to blame, apparently, solely in the Management and in the transport Senator. It is also the SPD were instead led Senate, which have contributed to the current Situation." Arndt recalled the former Senator of Finance Thilo Sarrazin, SPD: "the SPD has set screws-Senator of Finance Thilo Sarrazin, in the case of the BVG, the thumb, a continuous vehicle procurement prevented the reduction of staff promoted and has thus laid the Foundation for today's problems.“
"for years," got Verdi attention to the "threat of a power collapse, in the case of the BVG". The fact should not fool you, however, "that for all the criticism of the employees and the company is still at a high level of performance on the road and to provide a comparatively other big cities, close-stroke".
