ABSTRACT
The article reports that Germany's chemical workers union, IG BCE, has formulated its targets for improvements in wages and working conditions before negotiating a new contract with the federal employers association in 2007. The union said that the pay rise sought for the 560,000 employees covered by the agreement in 1,900 companies should exceed inflation and reflect the industry's good earnings situation, as well as advances in productivity.
