Since there are still no signals from the employers or an offer to the employees in the public service, there will be a strike in bamberg this week as well. Tomorrow, thursday, the union verdi calls individual strike delegates from a wide range of businesses, services and communities to a strike meeting and rally at 10 a.M. At the gabelmann (gruner markt). "We want to make clear here the whole breadth of the public service and the public services", so doris stadelmeyer, district manager in upper franconia-west, in a press release from verdi. "These are the employees who are always there, not just at corona times. They ensure that our lives run smoothly in many functions, from care to refuse collection, from water and energy supply to street cleaning. For this they demand the appreciation they deserve."
Verdi demands, among other things, a 4.8 percent pay rise for federal and municipal public service employees, with a minimum of 150 euros per month for a period of twelve months.
