In times of crisis, the rail sector must and can be the backbone of stable basic services. Health care is a top priority for the rail industry in Germany. We make maximum efforts to provide our employees with the best possible protection in office functions, workshops and on construction sites. Under these conditions, the rail industry in Germany knows about its social obligation as a system-critical industry. Resilient clusters are now more essential than ever. The strong alliance of responsibility between industry, operators, customers, authorities and politics is crucial for the operational safety of the railways. The goal of the VDB is to strategically secure the structures of our future industry so that we can make a powerful restart for climate-friendly mobility after the crisis."
