Spent some time looking up what the union demands are for the train strikes I'm affected by, and that seriously is difficult to find. No news article mentions it, they just talk about what trains aren't going. When I found the union website I had hope, but most posts there had the same problem. Four levels deep I found some hints.

The thing is that 4.5% salary increase was offered (or 3.5% per year for a multi year deal) while automatic tracking of inflation was demanded. Also some structural changes of working conditions (e.g. related to night time work) were asked by the unions and not offered by the employer.

I don't understand the secrecy around this for something that affects the whole country.
