Siemens and Central Works Council agree on package of employee measures
Labor Director Russwurm: "We're pleased at the quick agreement. Measures will start at once."
To prepare employees for the changed requirements of today's labor market, the Siemens transfer company will focus on training opportunities as well as job counseling and placement services. Employees joining the transfer company will be able to obtain, for example, additional qualifications recognized by the German Chamber of Industry and Commerce - such as certificates of vocational competency in promising fields of technology and engineering - at Siemens' training centers. In the transfer company, which is scheduled to begin operation on November 1, 2008, employees will continue to receive 85 percent of their current gross salary. The goal of the transfer company is to find jobs for employees both in and outside Siemens. Placement services via a job market set up by Siemens are planned to start as of September 1.
