Action across public services


A one-day strike by ver.di members at airports around the country took place on 17 February partly in support of the negotiations in federal and municipal government and partly in support of separate negotiations in ground handling services and aviation security. On 13 February, ver.di members around the country submitted early years education plans to local archives and museums as a gesture to highlight that they are currently impossible to implement. The union estimates that childcare services currently lack of 170,000 trained staff. Ver.di has also negotiated an agreement on staffing at the University Hospital Dresden that specifies staffing levels and limits to workloads. If employees work in understaffed shifts, they will receive compensation of 15% percent, primarily compensated in free time. This is the 25th such agreement negotiated by the union and more should follow.
