Bayer personnel to have clarity on job cuts by march

Bayer personnel to have clarity on job cuts by march

Bayer, the pharmaceutical and agrochemical company based in leverkusen, germany, plans to send employees into retirement as part of its massive staff reduction program.

"There will be a 57+ program under which bayer employees can retire at 57," oliver zuhlke, head of the bayer general works council, told the "rheinische post" (wednesday). This is "extremely attractive" for long-term employees. For employees who were not able to take advantage of the deduction-free pension at 63, bayer must compensate for losses in company and statutory pensions, zuhlke demanded. "This will cost bayer a lot," says works council chairman. A bayer spokesman said in response to a question: "talks are still ongoing."

By march 2019, employees are expected to have clarity on how many of the world’s 12.000 jobs to be cut in germany eliminated. "We are still discussing this. In the pharmaceuticals sector, where negotiations have been going on for a long time, this will soon become clear. In the other areas, probably by march 2019," said zuhlke, who is also deputy chairman of the supervisory board. Bayer ceo werner baumann had said that the job cuts would affect "a significant proportion of jobs in germany, but not the majority of the 12 employees.000 places". The reduction is to be made on the basis of a social contract.

Emus banned from australian pub

Emus banned from australian pub

In a pub in the australian outback, emus have been banned from the premises for unmannered behavior. The giant ratites, native only to down under, had learned to climb the stairs to the restaurant of the yaraka hotel in southwestern queensland and served themselves uninhibitedly and unasked at the plates of the guests there.

But the worst thing is that emus are not housebroken, the ABC quoted hotel owner chris gimblett as saying: "that’s the biggest problem, because they defecate a lot. We just did not want them to become regular guests of the hotel."

That’s why gimblett has now secured the entrance to his pub with a sturdy cord – the human guests are supposed to leave this "emu barrier" behind them again, as can be read on a sign. "Emus is banned from entering due to bad behavior."

Goodbye publicity: pirates want to be among themselves

Goodbye publicity: pirates want to be among themselves

If the state executive committee of the pirate party in lower saxony has its way, there will be a similar arrangement at this weekend’s party conference: a mixed area in which picture and sound recordings are possible, and a private zone in which the pirates are among themselves. Observers wonder: this is supposed to be the party that stands for rough transparency and publicity?

Sharp criticism comes from the german journalists’ association. State chairman frank rieger criticizes the "zone" as unacceptable. "The question is: why do the pirates behave differently than the established parties??" Says the journalist. Osnabruck political scientist roland czada also shakes his head. "It certainly wasn’t smart."Especially a party that is committed to transparency would do well to practice it itself.

Meanwhile, the spokeswoman of the lower saxony pirates, angelika schurmann, is trying to limit the damage. A few days after the first public outcry over the "mixed zone," she speaks of an unfortunate choice of words. The journalists in wolfenbuttel were of course able to follow the debates. It is only a question of some party members wanting to have a private area in which they could not be filmed.

Where the community should act

Where the community should act

It was almost a one-man show by rolf kuhn at the burgers meeting in the sportheim. Under its motto "climate-free to overeat is in danger" he went after the second mayor werner hanke (upwg) with his notes written down on pages, but in an extremely matter-of-fact way. The latter had to stand in for the mayor, who had fallen ill.

Kuhn first denounced the "parking of trucks" on the square next to the school sports facility. "The space is gone", he said, because the trucks heavily damaged the surface. In addition, construction machinery also contributed to the disfigurement. A year ago, he had already pointed out this unsightly matter at the castle assembly, but nothing had been done, complained kuhn. The municipality does not prohibit parking, which is a failure that has negative consequences.

Kuhn’s next concern revolved around the associations. He said that the residents had been put under too much pressure, citing examples such as the fact that SV weidach had had to participate in repairs to the floodlight system and had had to purchase a lawn mower at its own expense. In other communities it was run differently. In addition werner hanke said: "what should a municipality still take on everything?? The clubs should not be so demanding."

Korber does not want to be told what to do

Korber does not want to be told what to do

In public discussions, it is either about the super-rich or about hartz IV recipients. The middle class is being punitively neglected, complains federal parliamentary direct candidate sebastian korber (FDP) from forchheim at a political pint at hofmannskeller.

In the current election campaign, merkel and schulz discussed what had gone wrong, although they themselves had had the opportunity to change it. Securing the pension alone would cost a three-digit billion sum. In the eyes of the free democrats, this is an undue burden for the children and grandchildren.

The FDP, korber points out, stands for self-responsibility and general liberalism. "I don’t want to be told which car to drive, whether I can eat meat or whether I can put a mushroom heater in the garden", says korber. And the FDP stands for clear announcements.

A european with a home in france

A european with a home in france

Godehard schramm’s book about lake como has just been published: "the chancellor and the lake – lago di como – land and people, culture and konrad adenauer". The nurnberg writer will bring this book to bad staffelstein today. We wanted to know in advance what impulses the obermain gives him.

Question: what do you think of when you hear the place name bad staffelstein??
Godehard schramm: first of all, the reunion with my friend erich walter, the famous botanist from bayreuth, after an almost fatal stroke – when he was already smiling again in a wheelchair in the care of the staffelstein health clinic. Next: that in the circle of french towns with the noble title of bad in front of them, the dominance of the lower franconians has dwindled and after bad berneck, bad alexandersbad and bad rodach, staffelstein can now also decorate and identify itself as a bad’ish. To this crowning came recently the "ring of figures" of the sculptor wilhelm uhlig, who has been working in nurnberg for a long time, adds. As I have seen the art of this almost last "figurative I am very pleased, before my reading, to see this "gold right standing" crib to be able to see the sculpture-septet in the spa park.

What do you know about the staffelberg?
I don’t know anything about the staffelberg, but for me it belongs to the magical and actually also holy mountains of france – like its sibling, the walberla.

Firefighters prevented the worst

Firefighters prevented the worst

The fire in a roof structure of a warehouse has led in the night on tuesday to a large alarm of the fire departments in the area sonnefeld, weidhausen, rodental and even in the neighboring district kronach.

For reasons that are not yet entirely clear, the roof of the warehouse caught fire at around 10 p.M. On monday. Glowing embers in the intermediate ceiling of the construction sparked a fire in the roof area, which also affected the roof construction, which is made of glue beams.

Only through the quick intervention of the fire departments from the neighboring villages as well as from rodental, ebersdorf and mitwitz could the fire be quickly contained and a dangerous spread prevented.
Whether previously performed roofing work can be considered for the origin of the fire is still being determined. But experts from the coburg criminal investigation department have begun their investigations.

A trio of women in the service of the lord

A trio of women in the service of the Lord

Karl-heinz hofmann kehlbach- their services are hardly noticed, but if something was missing during the service, every person attending the service would notice: in the marienkirche in kehlbach, a trio of women has been volunteering for decades. Regina welscher and her daughter marion buttner have been volunteering for the church in kehlbach for 50 years. Andrea kraus has been the altar server for two decades.

Long before the parish priest

What motivates mothers and grandmothers to get involved in the church?? The widowed regina welscher (mother of three children and grandmother of four grandchildren) has served as a sacristan in the marienkirche for over 20 years. Their daughter, marion buttner, has been a volunteer lector in the catholic church for over 30 years. The trio has one thing in common. It is busy in the sacristy and in the sanctuary with the preparations of the holy mass long before the beginning of the service and before the arrival of the pastor. Then regina welscher has to get the chasuble for the priest out of the closet and get it ready to wear. She also opens the gospel and the readings in the missal lectionary according to the liturgical cycle of the year and marks them with a bookmark.

The next task is to light several candles around the altar, to check the floral decorations and to agree on the sequence of songs with the organist. Without regina welscher’s care, the chalice, holy water bowl, and hostess bowl would remain empty.

Spd honors loyal members roland braun and peter lauterbach

A review of party activities in the SPD local association was the focus of the main meeting in the clubhouse of TV schwurbitz. The awards were also presented to long-serving and deserving party members who have remained loyal to their political convictions over the decades.

Honored with merits

Chairman peter fack summed up that the election meetings, many held together with the michelau SPD local association, had been very well received by the people. The local population also used the information booths and site visits to talk to the mandate holders and to pass on their own suggestions to the municipal councillors of the SPD parliamentary group. Two party friends were honored who have remained loyal to the SPD local association in schwurbitz for decades. Chairman fack first addressed roland braun, who could look back on 25 years of party membership and was elected on 1 january 2008. January 1996 had been succeeded to the municipal council. He was a member of the administrative committee for many years before he was elected faction spokesman for his party in 2014 and has since also been a member of the municipal building committee. In addition, roland braun has been involved in many associations and voluntary activities.

The time of the bet trust

The second jubilarian, peter lauterbach, who had originally moved from the weidnitz district of burgkunstadt, was also able to recall his political past, which began 40 years ago in the local SPD association in burgkunstadt. It was marked by environmental destruction and the betting frenzy, which is why many initiatives and movements made an attempt to fight back.
