Delivery dispute at Volkswagen there is a solution. This was confirmed by a company spokesman agencies dpa and AFP. Thus Volkswagen is to quickly get parts of the Prevent Company Car Trim and ES Automobilguss. The “Hannoversche Allgemeine” reported on the agreement of the parties. They could now even agreed on a long-term partnership, it said in the report.
Since Monday VW and two suppliers had almost continuously explored the possibility of an amicable settlement. “There are still a few points of detail, where it hooks” the spokesman of the Prevent Group said on Tuesday morning after 19 hours of negotiations. He said the chances for an agreement with 50:50. The two suppliers Car Trim and ES Automobilguss had stopped the supply of covers for car seats and gearbox on VW. Background was a dispute over a canceled contract from VW.
Previously became known that the payment of short-time allowance for employees of Volkswagen in the current dispute, the contributors could cost around ten million euros per week. This was reported by the “image”, citing internal estimates. The sum is based on how many of the 28,000 threatened employees in the six VW plants ultimately go on short time. The production at the sites stopped on Monday. Before short-time working allowance is paid, the employee must first degrade overtime.
In politics criticism of the plans of VW already had become loud. The group should not impose the contributors to the social security funds, the cost of its dispute with suppliers, it said in the Union. With reduced working hours, companies can react to a drop in orders, without equal to lay off employees. For this, the company working is reduced temporarily. For the loss of earnings of employees jumps to request the Federal Employment Agency with the so-called short-time compensation when certain conditions are met.
the CDU labor market expert Karl Schiewerling said the “Sueddeutsche Zeitung”: “short-time work is not a strike fund for companies that are located in the economic struggle and received contracts fail to comply in good faith.” The cost of the dispute hiss VW and suppliers should not be burdened with third parties. Similarly, the CSU SME politician Hans Michelbach said: “The short-time allowance is not intended that its buying power on the hump of contributors financially safeguards”, he told the “Rheinische Post”

This is a good example of how losses are allocated to the company. Just because VW has driven high risks in purchasing and dispensed redundancies, the public must pay in the form of short-time allowance.
The SME representatives of the Greens parliamentary group, Thomas Gambke, argued the same way: “It is wrong that the payer is charged because a group with its supplier companies ausficht a commercial conflict” he told the Journal. “That’s not at all.” (AP, AFP, rtr)
