Committee for Pay and Labour Law Questions (ata)

The most important committee is the committee for pay and labour law questions (ata). This committee discusses matters relating to key collective bargaining strategies in particular planned structural changes to collective bargaining agreements for private insurance business. The board values the results of its deliberations very highly and they often form the basis of our strategy in collective bargaining negotiations.

The committee is made up of experienced HR directors and HR managers. Also the spokesmen of the local HR managers’ group are present by power of their office.

Such a membership ensures a high level of competence and experience in HR issues. The committee usually meets twice a year in person, once in autumn in Munich; currently the committee meets four times, three of which are virtual meetings.

Every group of companies with more than 3,000 employees can put forward a member for ata. All companies make use of this right.
