Air, railway and public transportation workers affiliated with the EVG and Ver.di unions are scheduled to observe a nationwide strike over pay disputes on 27 March 2023. The industrial action is anticipated to affect long-distance, regional and intercity railways, as well as airport and public transportation services in the states of Bavaria, Baden-Wurttemberg, Hesse, Saxony, Lower Saxony, Rhineland-Palatinate and North Rhine-Westphalia. Travelers planning to use public transportation should seek alternative methods of travel, as services are likely to be limited. The two unions are demanding wage increases of 10-12% amid rising inflation rates.
