The IG Metall brings to the rescue of Jobs in the metal and electrical industry a Four-day week into a conversation. "The Four-day week would be the answer to the structural change in industries such as the automotive industry. So that industrial jobs hold, instead of you to write off," said the First Chairman of the trade Union, Jörg Hofmann, the "süddeutsche Zeitung" (Saturday). Details Hofmann is not mentioned; he spoke only of "a certain wage compensation for the employees, so it can afford to have the employees".
Hofmann looks for companies interested in reducing working time instead of releasing. "This ensures the professionals and saves, for example, costs for a social plan." Companies like Bosch, ZF and Daimler had only met this summer, agreements for reduction of working hours.
The parties to a collective agreement in the metal and electrical industry had not agreed, under the impression of the gathering corona of the crisis in March for around 4 million Workers in the industry to increase the fees this year. With this Emergency-the conclusion of the 31 was. March terminated pay-collective agreement has been extended until the end of the year 2020 without any further increases. Thus, the subject of a Four-day week could come up with the next bargaining round from the turn of the year on the table.Updated Date: 15 August 2020, 09:19
