Based on the attached report, we would like to draw your attention to the strike of the Trade Union of German Locomotive Drivers GDL, which is planned as follows:
“GDL members at Deutsche Bahn AG, Transdev and City Bahn Chemnitz have been asked to stop work from 10/01/2024 at 02:00 a.m. to 12/01/2024 at 06:00 p.m. The work suspension at DB Cargo begins on 09/01/2024 at 06:00 p.m.”
We are very sorry that similar events keep repeating, which cause irregularities in the planning and execution of transports. Although the locomotive drivers of METRANS are not organised in the GDL, we assume that the strike may also mean restrictions for our services, as the participation of DB Netz infrastructure workers in the strike is unknown. METRANS will continue to be a neutral operator and, despite these obstacles, will seek solutions to provide reliable services.
We are constantly monitoring the development of the situation in Germany and will keep you informed.
Colleagues from the relevant Customer Service departments remain at your disposal to answer any questions.
