🇩🇪 Giga Berlin

Why I call the last online consultation, which ended today, superfluous:

Only 8 new comments have been received by the authorities in the past three weeks, Ulrich Stock from the responsible state environmental agency said on Monday
8 objections have been collected in the 3rd consultation from a total of 811 citizens and associations

In the summer of 2021, the authorities published responses to these objections on the Internet, which the objectors could then react to again
The final operating permit still faces obstacles, because Tesla has not yet submitted all the necessary documents to the authorities

"This involves immission control issues and water law," explains Ulrich Stock from the State Environmental Agency

VW's mediation committee was unable to reach a compromise on Herbert Diess' future despite several attempts according to media reports

The supervisory board will meet & discuss on Tuesday whether and, if so under what conditions further cooperation with the Group CEO is possible
The unions and the state of Lower Saxony, as co-owner of VW, are worried that the CEO will continue to cause unrest with his management style, which is sometimes perceived as provocative

Minister-President Weil, as well as Worker council head Cavallo, have upcoming elections
The Executive Committee is now a broader body whose recommendations are generally followed by the Supervisory Board as a whole. Internally, it is said that too much importance should not be attached to the Tuesday meeting, as a number of other meetings are still scheduled.

VW Group CEO Diess

"First of all, I think such a commitment is very good; after all, we have something like that in our Group"

'In VWs volume segment markets such as LaAm & Russia would also have to be served where electrification "doesn't really make sense in the first step"🤦
CEO Diess
'In Latin America for example, synthetic fuel made from renewable raw materials is "very well established & CO2-free. It would therefore not make much sense there to quickly switch to EVs. "We have to make the transition to CO2-free in sync with the ecosystems'

Diess could not say in the interview when the last internal combustion engine would roll off the production line at Volkswagen.

"It may still make sense in 2035 to drive cars in Latin America with renewable raw materials, and you need internal combustion engines there for that."

VW Employee meeting Wolfsburg

Worker Council Head Cavallo "My aspiration is that our main plant will continue to be the engine for the Group in the future." To achieve this it is crucial to combine the most modern production, the best personnel & the greatest pioneering spirit
She continued, " manufacturing, efficiency and sustainability would have to go hand in hand, at the end of which the Group's largest unit volumes would be produced"

"There is not one person too many on board here,"

'Not one job is negotiable', Cavallo said.
Herbert Diess responded, "I want your children & grandchildren to still be able to have a secure job here with us in Wolfsburg after 2030"

'However the jobs that exist today will certainly become fewer within the next 10 - 15 years especially in administration at Group level ..

Herbert Diess CEO VW Group position questioned from the mighty worker council in pre talks of the supervisory meeting

"The company is blocked"

A mediation committee is set up in the Supervisory Board

A process started that can cost Diess his job
Worker Council speaker,

"Constructive and confidential discussions are currently underway. Any results will be communicated in due course."

According to sources the core of the dispute is Diess' demand for speed in the restructuring of the Group
Diess' position within the VW Group is at risk in view of the weak quarterly results & BEV sales falling short of expectations

In addition to the worker council, Diess is also in dispute with the state of Lower Saxony, which has a seat on the advisory board and 20% voting rights
