BERLIN: German train company Deutsche Bahn sought an emergency injunction Thursday to stop a strike by some train drivers that has disrupted rail traffic in the country for a third time this summer. Deutsche Bahn said it considers the latest strike by the GDL labour union to be illegal. The company noted that it has increased its offer in negotiations with the union and is now offering a one-time “Coronavirus bonus” of up to 600 euros ($700) to members.
The strike, which began with freight trains Wednesday and was extended to passenger trains Thursday, is due to last until September 7.
If it continues it will affect many travellers returning from summer vacation in two German states.
