Also train delays and train cancellations on Monday. The GDL union continued its strike unhindered. “The situation has not changed and the replacement schedule has resumed as planned,” a railway spokesman said in the morning.
40 percent of trains are operated
Long-distance transport capacity was increased to about 30 percent over the weekend, so it could be maintained in the new week as well. In regional transportation, Deutsche Ban expects an average of about 40 percent of trips to take place. For example, in Shellswick-Holstein and Hamburg, trains of the RE 7 / RE 70 run regularly every two hours on the track between Flensburg or Kiel and Hamburg, and the RE 8 must run every hour between Hamburg and Lூbeck. On long-distance transport, one-third of trains have to run.
GDL: “No basis for negotiation”
According to its own reports, the Rail Drivers Association found no basis for re-negotiating with Deutsche Ban on the GDL pay dispute. GTL boss Klaus Weselski told the ART and ZF’s morning paper that the union would be willing to talk if a “negotiated offer” came from the railways.
Through the strike, the union wants to bring in higher incomes and better working conditions for employees. This is the third strike in this joint venture. The labor dispute ends at 2 a.m. Tuesday.
