Am Mittwoch wird das Tarifergebnis den streikenden präsentiert und durch eine Urabstimmung ratifizert. Bei einer Mehrheit von mindestens 25% gilt der Tarifvertrag als angenommen. Die Verkehrsbetriebe werden dann den Betrieb „möglichst rasch“ wieder aufnehmen.

Wie uns Ver.Di auf Nachfrage bestätigt, wird der Fahrbetrieb – sofern das Tarifergebnis angenommen wurde – ab Donnerstag wieder aufgenommen. Da die Tourenpläne an diesem Tag noch nicht vollständig „rund“ laufen, wird der Betrieb noch eingeschränkt laufen, ab Freitag sollte wieder alles „normal“ laufen.
