Several workers want the election of workers’ representatives in March to be declared invalid because they believe that election rules have been violated. The car manufacturer and the works council, on the other hand, saw no fault. At the end of April there was already a first hearing in court. According to a court spokesman, it is not clear whether a decision will be made on Thursday.
Among other things, the plaintiffs complain that, in the absence of a joint operation, no joint elections should have been held in the areas of Zuffenhausen, Ludwigsburg and Sachsenheim. On the other hand, the works council and the company argue that the collective election was required under the Construction Constitution Act and was further protected by the collective agreement.
The plaintiffs also see a serious violation in the case of notifications about voting and polling. Information about the place, day and time of possible voting was announced only on March 10, 2022 – at a time when many workers were on short-time work. In any case, they were not adequately informed, according to the plaintiffs’ argument. The works council protested that everything has been done on time and properly.
In 2019, the works council election at Daimler headquarters was declared invalid by the Stuttgart labor court. At that time, one of the issues was that in the two remote locations of the company in Berlin and Gernsbach there were no elected employee representatives. The judges decided at the time that good care was not possible in this way. Porsche’s affected areas are closer.
Porsche shares temporarily lost 4.38 percent to 98.20 euros via XETRA.
