Good news from northern Germany: As of July 16, 2022, numerous companies in Bremen, Hamburg, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Schleswig-Holstein and northwestern Lower Saxony that are bound by collective agreements will be entitled to offer their employees company bike leasing via salary conversion. This was agreed by IG Metall Küste and the Nordmetall Employer’s Association.

Modernization package for some 130,000 employees in northern Germany

The addition of a bike leasing option, financed through salary conversion, to collective bargaining agreements is part of a comprehensive modernization package agreed upon by the collective bargaining parties at the end of June. The associated collective bargaining agreements apply to around 130,000 employees in the metal and electrical industry. Until now, these employees have not been able to benefit from the advantages of company bike leasing. Thanks to the new agreements, this is now changing. The only prerequisite for employees to be offered this option is that the employer and the works council of the respective companies agree on a corresponding voluntary company agreement.
