The General Works Council (GWC) represents the interests of more than 34,000 Daimler Truck employees in Germany. The GWC negotiates and concludes cross-site agreements with the management - so-called central works agreements -, which then apply to the entire workforce of Daimler Truck AG in Germany.
The committee consists of 13 members: The chairs and vice-chairs from the works councils of the plants in Kassel, Mannheim, Wörth and Gaggenau as well as from the headquarter in Leinfelden-Echterdingen. In addition, there are two works council members from Daimler Truck retail and one representative from the German sales organisation, MBVD. The GWC members elect a chairperson and a vice-chair.
