Train drivers strike in passenger transport started

The railway explained that the emergency timetable offered “only a very limited range of trains in long-distance, regional and S-Bahn traffic”. Travelers can postpone their trips. If you want to start your journey, the railway recommends that you check with the information media to find out whether the connection runs according to the emergency timetable or not.

The mega-strike is the fourth in the current round of collective bargaining, which began at the beginning of November: in November and December, the union backed up its demands with a one-day warning strike, followed by a three-day strike in January. The GDL's core demand is a reduction in weekly working hours from 38 to 35 hours. The railway has so far offered an optional model for reducing working hours by one hour per week from 2026.
