Erber village In the Berbersdorf Edeka camp strikes again – and for three days from Monday to Wednesday. The workforce wants to increase the pressure on the employer in the third collective bargaining.
“At the second collective bargaining on 5 June, employers made a miserable offer,” the Verdi union says. The Verdi Tariff Commission calls for all wages, salaries and trainee benefits to be increased by € 1 per hour worked for all relevant trade union members. In addition, there is a salary surcharge of 20 cents per hour worked and a term of twelve months on the list of claims. The offer of Edeka does not comply with the Verdi data. The offer of the retail chain: 1.8 percent wage increase in the first and 1.2 percent more in the second year. The Sachsenzuschlag was rejected.
The tariff commission of Verdi calls this “completely inadequate” and rejects the offer. “This is no recognition for the increased workload, the high pressure to perform and the daily motivation of our colleagues in the companies,” says Verdi negotiator Sylke Hustan in a statement. “It has nothing to do with appreciation!”
The three-day strike, which is scheduled to end on Wednesday at 11 pm, will now increase pressure on the table to be negotiated from a trade union perspective in the upcoming round of negotiations on July 2nd.
