The Chairman of the services union Verdi, Frank Bsirske, has criticized the proposed law for the bargaining unit. “We reject the tariff law of unity, because it at least indirectly an interference with the constitutionally protected right to strike is” Bsirske said before the adoption of the regulation in the Bundestag of the German press agency: “In operation, when only the collective agreement of the majority trade union to apply, can minority unions prevail not have its own collective agreement anymore, “he admitted concerns. “A strike would be so, according to previous case-law of the labor courts disproportionate.”
The proposed bargaining unit law lays down rules on conflict of competing trade unions within a company. Can they not agree, the law stipulates that the collective agreement of the union comes with the most members to the course. Smaller craft unions like the German train drivers union (GDL), the pilots union Cockpit and the doctors’ union Marburger Bund have already announced constitutional challenge. The opposition in the Bundestag considers the law unconstitutional. The Federal Council can not stop it.
bargaining unit was in principle desirable, so that workers are not pitted against each other, says Bsirske, “but this we have to achieve with union funds”.
