The Verdi union is again calling on Deutsche Post employees to walk out. Anyone waiting for letters and parcels at the beginning of the coming week will have to be patient.

In the coming week, numerous letters and parcels in Germany will probably reach their destinations later than usual. The reason is further warning strikes announced for Monday and Tuesday by the Verdi union in the current collective bargaining dispute with Deutsche Post.

Verdi said in Berlin that workers were being called on to walk out nationwide. The warning strikes would extend to selected businesses in all areas of work – letter and parcel centers and delivery. Protest rallies are planned in ten cities.

“This is again a crystal-clear signal to the employers: The employees are ready to fight for their demands and are now expecting a round of negotiations that will end with a strong salary increase,” said Andrea Kocsis, Deputy Verdi Chairwoman and chief negotiator. It is incomprehensible why such a successful company is not willing to compensate for the real wage losses of its employees as a result of inflation.

The union is demanding 15 percent more money for the approximately 160,000 employees with a contract term of one year. The Post board rejects the demand as unrealistic. The third round of negotiations will continue on February 8th and 9th in Düsseldorf. Swiss Post has announced that it will then submit an offer.
