Germany’s train drivers union has begun its biggest strike yet as it continues a dispute with Deutsche Bahn over pay and negotiating rights, Euro news reported Monday.
The strike started Monday afternoon for freight and for passengers it is from 2 a.m. Tuesday.
Services will be disrupted until 9 a.m. Sunday.
The union headed by Claus Weselsky, is pushing for a five percent pay rise, a reduction of hours from 37 to 39 and the right to represent other employees such as stewards.
This is the eighth such action by the smaller of Germany’s two rail unions and it will effect millions of people.
