Public sector workers in Germany staged “warning” strikes across the country on Wednesday.

Staff working in hospitals, rubbish collection, local transport and day-care centres all took part.

Their union Verdi is calling for a 3.5 percent pay rise and an extra 100 euros a month. The government has agreed to a pay rise but said the unions demands were “exorbitant”.
