Bombardier Transportation Confirms German Restructuring

The Management and the General Works Council of Bombardier Transportation GmbH have signed a general company agreement regarding the transformation in Germany.

This agreement formalises the cornerstones that were agreed upon and previously announced on June 29, 2017. This means that milestones of the transformation, such as the specialisation of the German sites, are now contractually fixed. This agreement is valid until the end of 2020.

Michael Fohrer, Managing Director of Bombardier Transportation in Germany, said:

“We are very satisfied with this formalized agreement. We now have a clear path to implement the measures that sustainably improve the competitiveness of Bombardier Transportation in Germany”

“The result provides planning security on all sides.”

Global Transformation Programme

As stipulated in the general company agreement, both a social plan and a volunteer programme will be adopted promptly. The social plan will include compensation measures for the employees affected by the specialisation of the German sites. The volunteer program enables selected staff to terminate their work relationship with Bombardier on a voluntary basis and on appropriate terms.
