How are the mediation possibilities for the engineering

IG Metall Reutlingen-Tübingen

In the negotiations that took place on Monday, November 18, 2013, about a balance of interests with the aim of keeping jobs at Norgren, the management continued to be intransigent.

From the point of view of IG Metall, it is scandalous if a management board condescends to claim that a transfer company is superfluous because the job market in the Stuttgart area offers excellent opportunities for immediate new employment.

Scandalous on the one hand, because there are no equivalent jobs in the region, on the other hand, because this is a concession by the works council to cut jobs. The least that a works council would have to see in return for such a concession in free negotiations would be a transfer company. This would offer those affected the chance of an adjustment qualification for better placement opportunities on the labor market without necessarily becoming unemployed.

Norgren probably thinks it would be a suitable new job if her current employees soon find themselves in one of the rental companies that they have engaged in strike breaker work since the start of the strike in early October. Or should they also find new work in a security company and "protect" a company that has been on strike from the striking workforce?

Norgren's tough line certainly has an unprecedented character of disrespect for a workforce that has provided good returns for decades, which is why the determined struggle of this workforce deserves special respect.

Colleagues from the Reutlingen-Tübingen administrative office have already collected several donations in the companies or given them as individuals to support this exemplary workforce. Because with the solidarity of dependent employees there can be no administrative office boundaries!

We wish the Norgren colleagues continued perseverance and good luck in the further struggle and in the upcoming conciliation negotiations.
