The article deals with the demand of Germany's trade union, the Mining, Chemical and Energy Industrial Union (IG BCE), for a salary hike in 2007. Werner Bischoff, the IG BCE's wage negotiator, said that he saw no need for a marathon debate because the union's demands were realistic, clearly structured and responsible. According to the IG BCE, productivity and profits in the industry have grown rapidly, but German chemical workers have seen several years of moderate pay increases.
