Schwerin (dpa/mv) - In the course of the collective bargaining dispute in the public sector, there will also be warning strikes in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania on Tuesday (6 a.m.). The Verdi union has called on employees in 40 daycare centers and four after-school care centers in Schwerin and in the Northwest Mecklenburg and Ludwigslust-Parchim districts to walk out.
According to the union, both municipal institutions and institutions of institutions that have adopted the collective agreement of the public service or are based on it are affected. That is why the all-day warning strike was also called in daycare centers by the DRK, Arbeiterwohlfahrt (AWO) and Arbeiter-Samariter-Bund (ASB). A protest march through Schwerin and a rally with Verdi national chairman Frank Werneke are planned for the morning.
With the actions, the union wants to increase the pressure in the ongoing collective bargaining for the public sector. In the past few weeks there have been repeated public service warning strikes in MV.
In the forthcoming collective bargaining round, Verdi is demanding 10.5 percent more salary for federal and local employees, but at least 500 euros more per month for a period of twelve months. There was no rapprochement in the first two rounds of negotiations. The next round of collective bargaining will take place on 28/29. March in Potsdam.
