The trade union IG Metall is a well-recognised regulatory partner within the German vocational education system for initial and continuing vocational education in the industry based on collective bargaining, the Vocational Education Law, and agreements between social partners. In collaboration with employers, IG Metall aims to establish a new further education system in logistics which, due to the increasing international interconnectedness of the logistics sector, cannot be targeted only at the national system but has to be suitable to the entire European market. As the largest industrial union within Europe, IG Metall will cooperate with its European umbrella organisation EMF in order to implement the project results.
