HESSENMETALL represents the societal and social interests of its member companies from the Hessian metalworking and electrical engineering industries in dealing with politics, administration, the public and unions.
importance of the associations in the labour and industrial sectors is
particularly emphasised in the German Constitution in the 1st sentence
of Article 9, paragraph 3. According to it, labour and employment issues
should be handled for the most part independently by the collective
bargaining parties. HESSENMETALL, like other collective bargaining
associations, therefore plays a decisive role in the political systems
of the Federal Republic of Germany in terms of industry, society and
views itself as the attorney of the M+E industry. It is first and
foremost a party to collective bargaining agreements and labour law
representation. Further, it is a service provider for ergonomics and
human resources, a socio-political lobbyist, a mouthpiece and an
educational provider, an adviser on start-ups and on trends in one.
