Verdi wants to achieve a six percent wage increase for Postbank employees

FRANKFURT / BONN (dpa-AFX) – Verdi is going into collective bargaining at Postbank with a demand for six percent more money. According to information on Wednesday, the union wants at least an increase in collective wages by 180 euros for the employees of the institute belonging to the Deutsche Bank Group. The first hearing is therefore set for January 10th.

In addition, Verdi is aiming for a corona bonus of 700 euros for all employee groups. For employees in branch sales who suffered losses in commissions due to the pandemic, this compensation payment is to be increased to 1,500 euros.

As in the ongoing negotiations for the private banks, the union also wants to stipulate at Postbank that employees can work mobile for up to 60 percent of their working hours. According to Verdi, the employer should contribute 100 euros a month to the costs of working from home. In addition, the union is demanding an initial one-off flat-rate reimbursement of 1,500 euros for mobile working.

After some back and forth, Deutsche Bank decided in spring 2017 not to sell Postbank after all, but to integrate it into its private and corporate customer business. The legal integration was completed in mid-May 2020: DB Privat- und Firmenkundenbank AG, founded in May 2018, was merged with Deutsche Bank AG./ben/DP/nas
