Employee Representation

Our employees in Germany make use of their option to unionize. Every WACKER site in Germany has formally elected employee representation. WACKER actively nurtures constructive collaboration. In the interests of the company’s employees, relations between management and employee representatives are close and constructive. Innovative company agreements are one result of this dialogue.

WACKER employees abroad are free to unionize as well. At non-German sites where there is no (statutory or voluntary) employee representation, the HR department is the contact for employee interests.

Considering just five of the largest countries in which WACKER has a presence, more than 75 percent of the Group’s entire workforce are represented by collective-bargaining agreements or unions. In Germany, 100 percent of the company’s sites are bound to the collective-bargaining agreements of applicable industries.
