Strike at Germany’s biggest hospital

Germany's biggest hospital is on strike: The Charité, Berlin's university clinic, employs 13,000 workers. The struggle began this Monday, after 96% of trade union members had voted in favor of strike action. The workers are demanding a better personell ratio. One nurse currently has to deal with up to 14 patients – they are demanding a ratio of one to five, and during the night shifts, they want to have at least two nurses at each station. This is the first time nurses in Germany have gone on strike for more personell.
