The successful recovery from the financial crisis shows the essential factors for the strength of our companies. These always include highly qualified, motivated and flexible employees. It is this growing competitive pressure which requires the development of elements which are intelligent, innovative and necessary for shaping the change processes. These elements are needed in order to bring the differing interests of companies and employees into line. Locations and jobs in Northern Germany are secured by numerous site agreements, in-house wage agreements and above all through the strengthening and development of an intelligent area system. The traditional topics in collective bargaining are supplemented by collective bargaining agreements which actively reflect the effects of the demographic change. Our collective bargaining agreements thus make a significant contribution to strengthening Germany as a business location.
Providing clear answers to questions and taking a stance when problems arise – this is the standard against which the IG BCE measures itself. The members can be certain that their IG BCE will fight for their rights and interests in dialogue with business and politics and will exert its influence on industrial and socio-political conditions which shape the future for both companies and our members.
