MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the newspaper Tagesspiegel citing Deutsche Bahn spokesman Achim Stauss, a mere 10 to 15 percent of regional trains are still running or delayed in the Berlin region, while the rest have been canceled.
The walkout of Germany’s Deutsche Bahn train drivers was organized by the GDL Train Drivers’ Union and is set to last until Saturday. Drivers of freight trains went on strike on Monday. Passenger train drivers began the strike on Tuesday.
The latest round of negotiations in an ongoing dispute between Deutsche Bahn and GDL broke down in April without any results.
Over 300,000 people work for Deutsche Bahn worldwide, including 196,000 employees in Germany.
