Works Council

The works council is the body representing the interests of the employees at company level. Its term of office is five years (18.03.2021 - 17.03.2026).

The responsibilities of the works council include

  • Monitoring and control rights (e.g. compliance with the collective agreement, company agreements and employee protection regulations),
  • information rights (e.g. on the establishment and termination of employment relationships or on ongoing management matters), and
  • rights of intervention (e.g. to improve working conditions or in-company training); and
  • consultation rights (e.g., at the request of the works council, the management must hold joint consultations every quarter and provide information on important matters).

For concerns and appointments for personal discussions, the works council can be reached at   or under the respective individual contacts:
