Text size Aa Aa

German rail workers caused travel chaos on Monday when their union GDL called a three-hour strike in a pay dispute.

The stoppage hit commuter, regional and long-distance trains across the country.

More strikes are planned over the coming weeks as GDL pursues a 5 percent pay increase and a shorter working week.

On Friday pilots at Germanwings, the budget carrier of flagship German airline Lufthansa staged a six-hour strike in a dispute over pensions.
