According to its data, Segula has already committed dozens of Opelaners. Hundreds of questions are currently being converted into employment contracts. Furthermore, there are hundreds of candidates from outside, so those who are not working or no longer work for Opel.
Protection against operational dismissals
The collective agreement reflects the level of the engineering industry, he said. This was a negotiating objective of IG Metall, as communicated by the union a week ago. At that time, she was sure that she would reach the degree quickly.
"To resettle companies, it must be the goal of a union to make working conditions for future-oriented workers with collective agreements," explains Köhlinger. Good work had to be paid well, working hours had to be settled reliably and dumped competition had to be prevented. "All this succeeded after several intensive negotiations," emphasizes the district manager.
Segula had promised before and during negotiations on the domestic tariff to respect the protection against operational layoffs at Opel until July 2023 and the respective salary level. The company wanted more flexibility in working hours. Details of the house rate are available.
