Strikes in Germany affect international railways


The warning strike of railway workers has seriously affected the operation of German railway networks.  Strikes are taking place in Dortmund, Frankfurt-on-Mein, Rostock and other cities. The protests have also disrupted the international networks of the Eurocity trains.

The warning strikes are taking place for the whole week. Unions demand a 7 percent increase in salaries, while the German railways offers only 2 percent of pay increase in the course of two years.
