Vw's pact for the future is in the home stretch

Vw's pact for the future is in the home stretch

The future pact for more planning security at VW's German locations is entering the home stretch and, according to the company, should be in place "in the next few weeks". "A lot of things are well pre-structured, now we have to work on the details," VW brand chief Herbert Diess said in a company and works council briefing distributed Wednesday. The letter was available to the Deutsche Presse-Agentur. Manager Magazin" also reported Wednesday that the pact was close to being finalized.

Diess said in the letter, "We can put together packages that set up each location better and more economically, and at the same time also open up a good perspective for the coming years."VW personnel manager Martin Rosik emphasized that the pact requires a willingness to change among the core workforce. He guaranteed: "No employee has to fear losing his or her job – but possibly they will take on other tasks in the future."

One of the six working groups is therefore also discussing programs to retrain employees for new areas. In production, for example, the focus could be on more high-voltage competence for the battery technology of the young electric vehicles. But programming skills for the increasingly networked cars in a digitalized mobility world would also be a conceivable field.

Ahr valley: how people fight against mud and scrap metal

The national road 267 winds at Ahrweiler through the valley, just as the river next to it, the Ahr. Vines line the steep slopes of the mountains to the left and right of the shore. Until just over a week ago, the highway brought tourists to the region, including wine lovers, to the church towers, the wineries and promenades.

Now, however, the federal highway here at Ahrweiler has only one lane left. The other track is one Garbage dump, a good week after the flood disaster already hundreds of meters long. Wooden slats and iron bars are piled up, sofas, washing machines, even motor scooters, tables and cupboards. Everything is covered with a skin of yellow dust. It's an image usually only transmitted to German living rooms from tsunami areas. Now the debris is piling up in the middle of the Rhineland.

Where there was once lawn, there is now only dust and mud

Michael Schomisch sits under the roof next to his garage. He smokes a cigarette, sips a bottle of beer, gazes where once there was lawn and now there is only dust and Mud. For days, he says, he's done nothing but clean up. He shovels the mud as best he can, because the heat has made it as hard as concrete. Schomisch drags debris out of the cellar, the water was up to under the balcony on the second floor, here in the small town of Dernau on the banks of the river Ahr.

World climate summit: the biggest co2 offenders on earth

It's a "green" showcase for the great and powerful – via video conference. U.S. President Joe Biden has invited 40 heads of state and government to the virtual world climate summit this Thursday and Friday.

Also Chancellor Angela Merkel is in the process. Who are the biggest climate sinners – and how do they plan to cut their CO emissions??

China wants to achieve CO neutrality

Currently, China accounts for nearly one-third of the world's CO emissions into the air and consuming half of the mined coal. In September 2020, Xi Jinping made the most ambitious environmental policy promise to date: By 2060, he said, the People's Republic would achieve CO neutrality; by 2030 at the latest, the absolute peak in emissions would be reached. To date, however, China's government has not come up with a concrete plan of action.

Reader perplexed: “yes, where do you run??”

Reader perplexed: 'yes, where do you run??'

Our reader Gerhard Falk asks in our portal "Alarm 38":

When the Broitzemer/Goslarsche Strasse intersection was reconstructed, the width of the sidewalk was drastically reduced. For many residents with walkers, it is almost impossible to pass through the building. Is this a mistake in planning?

The answer researched Henning Noske

The Broitzemer Strabe/Juliusstrabe/Goslarsche Strabe intersection has been and will be thoroughly renovated. More quality of stay is to be created there: Sandstone-colored paving stones and a reduction of the road surfaces are to provide for it. But do pedestrians, cyclists and wheelchair users still get through properly now?
