German Railway Service Severely Disrupted in Pay Dispute Strike Action

BERLIN – German railway workers went on strike Monday, industrial action that severely disrupted the national train service throughout the day.

A pay row between the EVG trade union and Deutsche Bahn, the main railway company, paralyzed the long distance national train service in Germany after DB decided to bring the service to a standstill until the strike ended.

“The strike will end from 09:00. Deine EVG Trains will run again shortly,” DB tweeted. “Please understand, however, that there are still train cancellations and long delays. You can find up-to-date information about your train in the DB Navigator.”

DB has advised all long-distance travelers to delay their journeys until Tuesday.

The strike has also affected short distance trains and traffic on the roads leading to congestion across the country.

The western state of North Rhine-Westphalia was the most affected with a 423-kilometer (262-mile) gridlock.

The EVG trade union was in talks with DB until Saturday when negotiations broke down.

The union demands a 7.5 percent wage rise as well as the introduction of flexible working.
