The German Demolition Association is not just an economic association, but also an association of employers with tariff authority. For decades, the socio-political committee is negotiating its own wage agreements for the DA members and signs these with the tariff partner IG Building Agriculture Environment.
Despite all critical comments on wage agreements, the wage agreement system of the German Demolition Association turns out to be beneficial to the member companies. By adhering to the wage agreements of the DA, the members get a freedom from the social funds procedure of construction industry and from the levy on winter construction projects. The socio-political committee supports the enhancement of technical qualification of the demolition sector with opportunities for further training.
