Source: DGB – BundesvorstandPM 079 – 16.12.2020 Meat industry reloaded Out of exploitation with the new occupational safety control law On the adoption of the occupational safety control law in the Bundestag, Anja Piel, DGB board member, said on Wednesday in Berlin: “Work contracts in the meat industry are history from 2021, temporary work is largely prohibited. Exceptions are only possible under strict regulation. As employers, meat barons must take responsibility for the working and accommodation conditions of their employees, but there is also hope that the law will have a positive effect beyond slaughterhouses and sausage factories can be set. Employee accommodation can also be better controlled in future. Stricter rules for decent accommodation apply to all industries: More employers are obliged to accommodate their employees. Minimum standards will also apply in future if living space is organized through third-party providers. Unfortunately, the law still does not prevent excessive renting. The DGB is therefore sticking to the fact that the cost of accommodation must be capped in such a way that wage fraud does not continue. Now it is the turn of the federal states in the Federal Council: They have to agree to the law without compromises. Here is the chance to change the system. The workers in the meat industry wait long enough for it. “
