In the 2020/21 wage round, Roman Zitzelsberger was still ready to cook. During a warning strike, he fried shakshuka, Middle Eastern spicy food, in the pan. Some trade unionists mocked what that was supposed to mean. Hobby cook Zitzelsberger, full-time Baden-Württemberg district manager of IG Metall, replied in a good mood that serious things can be conveyed in an entertaining way. In fact, he has been cooking all his life: “I was already pushing a chair in front of the stove at the age of four to sizzle something.”
