GÖRG advises Hamburger Hochbahn AG on merger with subsidiaries

Hamburg, 11.02.2020

GÖRG Partnerschaft von Rechtsanwälten mbB advised Hamburger Hochbahn AG on the merger with subsidiaries which had previously provided scheduled and special transport services for HOCHBAHN. The focus of the advisory services was on the consequences of the mergers in terms of employment law, in particular negotiations with the Group Works Council of Hamburger Hochbahn AG and the local Works Councils of the merged subsidiaries.

The main focus of the corresponding negotiations with the employee representatives was on the conditions and framework conditions for employees merging from different companies into one company. This was accompanied by the merging and alignment of different working conditions on the basis of different legal bases, in particular a large number of different collective bargaining agreements and works agreements.

Hamburger Hochbahn AG is the second largest local transport company in Germany and is responsible for the underground and most of the bus operations in the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. Parts of the bus operations were previously handled by subsidiaries. In view of the climate debate, Hamburger Hochbahn AG is currently expanding its range of services as part of a bidding offensive. At the same time, vehicles within the Group are being converted to zero-emission drive systems. To support these goals, all of the Group's bus personnel should be uniformly managed and all material operating resources should be placed under the same management.
