Beer tents at the world-famous Munich Oktoberfest may face a pretzel shortage this year after local bakers threatened to go on strike. Munich’s NGG gastronomy union, which represents nearly 50,000 members of the Bavarian bakers’ guild, is demanding a 6.5% wage increase.
Talks stalled in the past week and the union threatened to strike during the world’s biggest beer festival, which is due to start on Sept. 20. “The offer from the employers is far too low and therefore we have to put more pressure behind our demands,” Walter Linner from the NGG union told NBC News.
