German engineering union IG Metall says it will continue with warning strikes, as it steps up pressure for a 6.5% pay hike for its 2.8 million members. The union says it will hold more walkouts in nine federal German states on April 22 and will resort to a full-scale strike if demands are not met by German industry. The union will begin new talks with employers in the southern states of Baden-Wuerttemberg and Bavaria next week.
