STUTTGART, Germany — A German labor strike on Wednesday could cause disruptions to some city services, including public transportation, child care and clinics in and around Stuttgart.

Buses and U-trains (underground) around the city will not be running on Wednesday, but S-train service will run on schedule, according to local media reports.

Mark Howell, U.S. Army Garrison Stuttgart spokesman, said he does not expect the one-day strike by the Ver.di labor union, whose members are seeking higher wages, to affect garrison operations. He issued a statement on the garrison’s Facebook page advising readers to check with hospitals, clinics, child care providers, trash collectors, banks and electric company to find out how they will be affected.

The garrison also cautioned that there might be a heavier-than-usual amount of traffic on Wednesday.
