Heinrich Böll Foundation

struggle againt precarious working condition in the Green political foundation

Self-proclaimed "agency for green ideas" Heinrich Böll Foundation seems to think precarization of working conditions is a good idea – while Germany's Green party at te same time rallies for the introduction of a minimum wage and against wage dumping. After some of the workers affected by the unfair conditions in the foundation were organized in the FAU Berlin and started to protest their conditions they went to court and were able to get permanent contracts on the basis of illegal temporary contracts. Still they are being treated differently than the permanent staff of the foundation and internal regulations and collective agreements are not respected in their treatment. Colleagues suspected of union activities have been singled out and moved to other jobs separating them from the rest of the staff.
