New chance for settlement of wage dispute

Joint press release GDBA, BFFS, VdO

Top-level talks open perspective for return to the negotiating table and start of negotiations for visiting artists

Hamburg/Cologne/Berlin, October 19, 2023 - Shortly before the break in the season, collective bargaining on working hours between the artists' unions BFFS, GDBA, VdO and the German Stage Association broke down.

Other pressing negotiation issues are also no longer to be postponed. It is planned to start collective bargaining for visiting artists before the end of the year.
