Warning strike in rail traffic cancelled


The 50-hour warning strike at Deutsche Bahn has been called off at short notice. Deutsche Bahn and the railway and transport union agreed to a settlement at the labour court in Frankfurt am Main, as announced by the Deutsche Bahn.

Accordingly, the warning strike has been averted. Previously, the "Hessischer Rundfunk" had reported on the agreement. The warning strike would have led to a 50-hour long standstill of long-distance traffic, and hardly any trains would have been able to run in regional and freight traffic as well as on the S-Bahn.

Restrictions in train services still possible

Despite the court settlement, however, Deutsche Bahn warned of restrictions in train services in the coming days. "DB is facing the major challenge of rescheduling around 50,000 train journeys and the associated shift and deployment schedules," it said. DB will provide information on the exact timetable from Sunday noon.
