Thyssenkrupp Unions Fear Loss Of Rights In Tata Steel Deal Structure

Unions at Thyssenkrupp have opposed the deal and are concerned more steel jobs may go in the long term in addition to as many as 4,000 job losses already announced as part of the merger.

Berlin: Labour bosses at Germany’s Thyssenkrupp said workers’ legal say in strategic decisions at the corporate level could be diluted in the planned holding structure for the new venture with Tata Steel. The two firms agreed last month to merge their European steel operations to create the continent’s second-biggest steelmaker after ArcelorMittal with combined sales of about 15 billion euros ($17.55 billion). The venture would be based in Amsterdam.

Co-determination in the coal and steel industries gives equal numbers of labour and capital representatives on company supervisory boards and is seen as key to winning over workers.

“What worries us is that through the planned move of the holding (company) of a potential joint venture to the Netherlands, existing co-determination structures in the group will be undermined,” labour leaders said.
