Germany’s IG Metall union said no progress had been made in talks with employers in the electrical and metal industries in the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg, the union said in an e-mailed statement.
The talks will resume on May 15, before which a commission of experts will devise proposals to find a solution to the wage dispute, both the union and employers association Suedwestmetall said in statements.
Suedwestmetall said it made a “fair offer” in the latest round of talks.
