Collective bargaining agreements
A clear commitment to freedom of association and the right to membership in a labor union are a matter of course for us. For this reason, our local sites establish the legally required collective employee representation. In addition, we apply the respective local wage agreements at all sites where this is standard practice, both from a legal and HR-policy standpoint.
Globally, 60 % of our workforce is covered by collective bargaining agreements, and about 87 % of the workforce in Germany is covered by our collective bargaining agreements.
