BERLIN (Reuters) – Customers of Deutsche Bank’s <DBKGn.DE> Postbank unit must brace for new walkouts after wage talks with Germany’s biggest lender failed, labour union Verdi said on Tuesday.

Verdi official Christoph Meister said in a statement the bank had offered a wage hike that did not even meet the projected inflation.

The union is now initiating a strike ballot, Verdi added.
