Deutsche Bahn Aktiengesellschaft Key Developments

Deutsche Bahn's Train Drivers Begin New Round of Rail Strikes

Germany's train drivers will begin another round of strikes on April 21, 2015 to press their demands in a protracted labour dispute with Deutsche Bahn. Train drivers' union GDL said that strikes in freight rail will begin at 15:00 hours Germany local time and end on 24 April, at 09:00 hours. Strikes in passenger services will begin on 22 April at 02:00 hours, and end on 23 April at 21:00 hours. GDL said it was launching this seventh round of strikes since September last year as talks with Deutsche Bahn were not progressing. Deutsche Bahn called on the union to withdraw the strike call. In the meantime, the company is preparing emergency plans to run reduced passenger services.

Deutsche Bahn and Bombardier Transportation Agree to Settle the Long-Running Disputes

Deutsche Bahn and Bombardier announced they have agreed to settle out of court two years of legal battles over allegedly defective trains. In March 2013, Deutsche Bahn sued Bombardier over serious defects in trains used on the suburban S-Bahn rail network in Berlin. It also sued the Bombardier for compensation regarding problems, including braking problems, with trains in operation in southwest and southern Germany. The settlement covered trains used on the suburban S-Bahn network in Berlin, as well as regional and suburban trains in Bavaria, North Rhine-Westphalia and Baden-Wuerttemberg.
