Baden-Württemberg: DGB calls for stricter requirements for public contracts

From the point of view of the DGB, dumping wages still exist in Baden-Württemberg - even with orders awarded by the state. The employee representatives are now calling for improvements to the tender conditions.

Stuttgart (dpa / lsw) - DGB country chief Kai Burmeister calls for green-black stricter rules when awarding government contracts. Burmeister said in Stuttgart that in future all public contracts, for example in the area of ​​transport, construction and electrical contracts or building cleaning, would have to be subject to collective agreements. This requirement must apply to tenders from 10,000 euros. "There must be no dirt competition. The state and local authorities have a great responsibility and must set a good example."

Burmeister went on to say that if a contract cannot be based on a collective agreement, an award-specific minimum wage of 13.50 euros would have to be paid in future. "Green-Black's claim to make Baden-Württemberg a model state of good work must finally be filled with content." Only every second employee in the country is protected by a collective agreement. Billions of dollars in revenue are lost to the state every year as a result of tariff evasion. "It's about a just country. If necessary, we'll be loud."

Millions of workers in Germany will receive higher wages from October 1st. The minimum wage will then rise to 12 euros per hour. The gross minimum wage is currently EUR 9.82. As of July 1, it will initially rise to EUR 10.45 as scheduled. The next adjustment is scheduled for January 1, 2024.
