GERMANY: STRIKE IN CATERING SERVICE [FAU]

The “grass-root union food and catering” BNG, a union of the FAU, called for an indefinite strike at the trendy pub “Trotzdem” [“Nevertheless”] in Dresden-Neustadt, Germany.

After the unions demand for withdrawal of the dismissal as well as the demand for a collective agreement has been ignored the organized servers are on strike until serious negotiations begin.
