HEUKING secures temporary injunction for client City-Bahn Chemnitz - GDL prohibited from striking during school transport hours

Business law firm HEUKING successfully obtained a temporary injunction for its client, City-Bahn Chemnitz GmbH, against the Union of German Train Engineers (Gewerkschaft Deutscher Lokomotivführer, GDL) in Chemnitz Labor Court. The injunction mandates that GDL must ensure, as part of an emergency service, that school transport continues to operate in the morning and afternoon despite the ongoing strike against City-Bahn Chemnitz.

GDL is thus prohibited from striking on the lines used by students during school transport hours. These services account for about 44 percent of all train operations by City-Bahn Chemnitz.

Every weekday, some 1,800 children and young people rely on City-Bahn lines for school transport. The strike has disrupted school transport services multiple times in recent weeks. Consequently, City-Bahn, supported by Chemnitz-based Partners Veit Päßler and Annemarie Rott, sought a temporary injunction in court.
