As part of the collective bargaining at Deutsche Bahn, the company reacted with incomprehension to the rejection of the railway and transport workers’ union (EVG) of its latest offer. “The trade union shows no desire to make concessions and does not offer any solutions. He just stubbornly insists on his original demands,” DB HR director Martin Seiler criticized.
In a statement, the railroad declined further negotiations: “At this point, it’s pointless because EVG isn’t moving an inch,” Seiler said. The company now wants to “comprehensively assess the overall situation” and discuss further steps with the responsible authorities.
EVG wants to continue
The union rejected the company’s revised and improved offer as insufficient and urged employers to continue negotiations in Berlin. “Essential points of our demands have not yet been met,” said Christian Loroch, a negotiator. “What is now on the negotiating table is socially unfair.”
Threat of further strikes
The EVG trade union announced the prospect of new warning strikes, however, the timing has not yet been named. “We will discuss this with our colleagues,” said Christian Loroch, a negotiator. Therefore, even a vote, which can lead to indefinite strikes, is not ruled out.
In the latest round of negotiations, the railroads made the current proposal, which calls for a 12% phased wage increase for the lower groups. The middle groups should receive a total of 10% more, and the top groups should receive 8%. The first stage of the increase should be carried out this year. In addition, there is a gradual compensation for inflation in the amount of 2,850 euros, which can be paid without taxes and contributions, starting from July this year. The payment period is 24 months.
EVG requirements not met
Compared to previous proposals, the railway has made further concessions to EVG, but the two sides are still far apart: the union is demanding a fixed amount of at least 650 euros per month, or 12% for the upper groups. The term should be only twelve months. EVG has so far categorically rejected one-off payments.
