German public sector strikes cause traffic, child care disruptions

Mainz, Germany (dpa) - Strikes by public sector employees continued to plague workers in parts of Germany on Thursday by shutting down popular commute routes and leaving them without child care.

After public transportation strikes in the cities of Cologne, Dusseldorf, Essen, Dortmund, Bochum and Duisburg, among others, in previous days, local transportation in the cities of Hamm and Mainz were paralysed on Thursday.

In the meantime, Mainz has set up an emergency plan with workers who aren‘t taking part in the strike driving "at irregular intervals," a spokesman for the Mainz public transportation authority said.

In Munich, the city‘s administrative and public services were striking, with at least half of public day care centres closed, according to Heinrich Birner, who heads the labour union Verdi in the Munich region. Rubbish bins are also not being emptied during the day.

The strikes revolve around a demand from Verdi for a 6-per-cent pay increase for about 2.3 million community and federal employees around Germany, with a minimum wage increase of 200 euros (247 dollars).

The union is also demanding an increase in pay for trainees and interns by 100 euros per month.

The employers have rejected the calls for increased pay. A final round of negotiations is set for April 15-16.
