Local public transport workers in Germany began a fresh 24-hour strike early Friday, posing a nightmare for morning commuters and travelers, APA reports citing Deutsche Welle.

The industrial action backed by Labor union Verdi has prompted the cancelation of buses and trams in all German federal states, except for Bavaria.

Verdi is urging better working conditions for public transport employees, among other demands. Verdi is negotiating with transit authorities amid the industrial action.

The Verdi union represents some 90,000 transport workers at around 130 municipal transit agencies.

Climate group Fridays for Future Germany has also endorsed the public transport action.
