Agreement on new collective labour agreement for network companies
In October, the delegations from WENb and the unions reached a deal on a new collective labour agreement that will expire in 2018. The network companies face a joint challenge. The energy transition causes positions, roles and requirements made of employees to change. Ageing and a shortage of technical and IT personnel in the labour market are two other important factors. The key objective for the network companies to create a flexible workforce, both within the companies and in the labour market. To achieve this, the different companies are agreeing on a preventative approach to redundancies. Based on this approach, employees are given the opportunity to enjoy training, stay healthy and have a sustainable career.
