Infineon employees in Bavaria who belong to the IG Metall trade union participated in a warning strike today over pay.

IG Metall also called on workers at Siemens and Epcos in the state to join in. In total 9,400 workers from the three companies took part in the walk-out over pay.

The union wants 6.5 per cent pay rises for its members while the employers are offering 2 per cent. It is threatening a ballot for national strikes, unless agreement is reached. ®
