Sülzetal (dpa/sa) - The DPVKOM union has called for a warning strike by Deutsche Post employees in Sülzetal (Börde district). Before the start of negotiations about the salary of around 160,000 Post employees, a clear and strong signal should be sent, the trade union announced on Thursday in Bonn. Employees at a location in Braunschweig, Lower Saxony, which belongs to the branch near Magdeburg, are also to stop working.
Among other things, the DPVKOM demanded 12 percent more wages for the employees. "This high fee demand is not only fully justified in view of the constantly rising prices for food and energy. Deutsche Post is clearly one of the winners of the corona pandemic," said the union.
