With the action on Friday, Verdi wants to hit hardware stores, supermarkets, perfumeries, clothing stores and furniture stores in various parts of Bavaria, among other things.
Rallies are planned in Augsburg *, Brunnthal and Nuremberg.
Especially in larger retail operations such as Douglas, H&M, Marktkauf, Kaufland and Metro, employees are taking their jobs.
"The trading groups made record sales during the pandemic and now employers are refusing to respect and appreciate people in collective bargaining by raising wages," said the negotiator in retail and mail order, Hubert Thiermeyer, explaining the warning strikes.
The union is calling for a wage increase of 4.5 percent plus 45 euros over a period of 12 months.
