The employees of a total of three Wirecard companies want to usher in for the middle of the month the works Council elections, how the services Union Verdi announced on Thursday. First choice meetings are to be held, to which an electoral Board is elected. This should then keep according to Verdi "as quickly as possible" the works Council elections.
