The German rail operator Deutsche Bahn has reached a deal with a train driver”s union to end a series of recent strikes.
The GDL union said the company had agreed on a “good compromise” and a pay rise for drivers.
The union said that it had secured assurances over pensions, a raise of about 3.3% over 32 months, and plus two “COVID-19 bonus” payments of €800 to €1,000.
Three widespread strikes on Germany’s railway network had caused severe disruption and travel chaos across the country.
The most recent strike in early September lasted a week and affected many travellers returning from summer vacation.
But a deal was struck on Thursday, with support from two German state governors.
“We have negotiated a good compromise [that] corresponds to what the railway workers deserve,” said GDL union leader Claus Weselsky.
