The second day of action at the BVG : Verdi hits the Wrong

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?

The order should be: negotiate First and if that fails, go on strike. The next official round of Negotiations will only be at the end of March. Why then today is a strike?

communicate with one another only via press releases

Both sides statements speak only in the press, and in which the tone is noticeably unfriendly: "Unfortunately, employers have shown up today in the demands for the collective contract as well as not," said Verdi on Wednesday. "We call on Verdi, finally in orderly negotiations at the negotiating table." informed the employer.

The Union wants an end to the Two-class society in the case of the BVG. Who is for a long time, working 36.5 hours. Who started after 2005, must have 39 hours ran. This creates discord in every operation. Since the trade Union's right.

The LOB reply that you would have to set over 500 new people, when all the work is only 36.5 hours. This staff will find the BVG nowhere. Here, the BVG has the right.

the Verdi was from profiling, i.e. in the BVG-to-peak. Such Attempts to advertise extreme claims of new members, is mainly used by Germany's train driver, and remember with horror the many long and excessive strikes.

If the thickening now, and the train drivers Union GDL to emulate, then good night.
