TIME ONLINE | News, backgrounds and debates

Frankfurt (dpa) - In the collective bargaining in Germany, there were more violent conflicts in 2018 than in the year before. This is shown by a study by the institute of the German Business Industry, which was first published by the "Rheinische Post". In a points system certain actions such as strike threat, lockout, negotiation abort or warning strike were evaluated. The index value thus calculated rose to an average of 9.9 points in the past year, almost three times the previous year's figure of 3.5.
