Employment conditions

The working conditions for DB Group employees are oriented, in addition to country-specific regulations, primarily on collective bargaining agreements that have been concluded with the trade unions in the respective countries.

In principle the collective wage agreements apply to employees in Germany. The activities of civil servants in DB Group are based on statutory allocation under Art. 2 (12) of the Rail Restructuring Act (Eisenbahnneuordnungsgesetz). The same wage agreement provisions within DB Group therefore apply on this basis to civil servants, insofar as the legal regulations governing civil servants do not conflict with this.

Further developments of the employment conditions for executives and employees not subject to collective wage agreements are being made continuously. DB Groupʼs strategy is based on the remuneration policy and the structure of ancillary services.
