Further warning strikes at IG Metall also in NRW

IG Metall has again called for warning strikes in the metal and electrical industry in North Rhine-Westphalia for Tuesday. In more than 60 companies across the country, employees are to temporarily stop working. The union is planning large rallies in Arnsberg, Bielefeld and Mülheim, among other places.

With the actions, IG Metall wants to put further pressure on metalworking employers in North Rhine-Westphalia in the current wage dispute. The first warning strikes had already taken place immediately after the end of the peace obligation on October 29. According to union information, more than 72,000 employees from 578 companies in the country had already taken part in warning strikes in the first 14 days.

In Arnsberg, the employees of ten companies want to gather in a shooting hall for a rally on Tuesday. In Bielefeld, employees from eleven companies meet in front of the gate of a large household appliance manufacturer. In Duisburg there is a joint rally with employees from eight companies in front of the trade union building. In Mülheim an der Ruhr, employees from numerous companies from Gelsenkirchen, Essen, Mülheim and Oberhausen want to come together on the town hall market.

Last Thursday, the fourth round of negotiations ended without a result. A date for a fifth round has not yet been set in North Rhine-Westphalia, according to a union spokesman. Around 700,000 people are employed in the sector in NRW.

In the nationwide regionally conducted negotiations, the employers had each offered one-off payments of 3,000 euros and an unspecified increase in the wage tables for a period of 30 months. IG Metall is demanding eight percent more money for the approximately 3.9 million employees nationwide for a period of twelve months.

After four unsuccessful rounds of negotiations, all eyes are now on Baden-Württemberg, where the regional unions have offered to look for a pilot agreement. The next negotiations in the traditional pilot district are scheduled for this Thursday.
