Effective 1 November 2009, the Bayer subgroup MaterialScience (BMS) will be reverting to the standard collectively agreed work week of 37.5 hours at its German sites. With the reintroduction of normal working hours the rates of pay for some 4,100 employees will return to their normal level. "The reason for lifting this special arrangement is the improvement in orders. Nevertheless the future business development of our customer industries still remains uncertain," said Dr. Tony Van Osselaer, Labour Director at BMS. At the beginning of February the company had introduced a reduction in working time and a corresponding pay reduction of 6.7 % to combat the effects of the financial crisis. An opening clause in the collective agreement was applied in order to avoid short-time working.
