Conflicts in university clinics continue

Germany Germany
Industrial peace hasn't settled over all university clinics in Germany yet as strikes and disputes continue in some regions. In Leipzig, members of the ver.di services union took a day's strike action on 5 September in protest against poorer pay and conditions being imposed on new employees. The union wants the same collective agreements to apply to all workers and is threatening to extend the action if the employer doesn't negotiate. In Halle and Magdeburg over 90% of employees have voted for strike action but this has been postponed as negotiations continue with the employer. Ver.di wants the clinics workers to be covered by the same conditions as negotiated with regional employers rather than the current local collective agreement.
