Extremism: Chairman Verdi: There is no place for people who hold positions in the AfD

Like Diakoni head Rüdiger Schoch, Verdi head Frank Werenke does not want to tolerate AfD representatives convinced in its ranks. “Anyone who is committed to the AfD's positions and represents the programme, has no place with us,” Wernecke told the German editorial network (RND). “We stand for a global and tolerant society. the Alternative for Germany party It does the opposite.” For this reason, for example, an exclusion measure was taken against a member who was a member of the Hanover city council of the AfD and at the same time an employee of the municipal waste disposal company.

“The right has become more emboldened, and they are trying to win a majority in corporate and employee council elections. This must be prevented,” Wernecke said. He noted that the legal barriers to expulsion from a union are high, compared to partisan expulsion procedures. But: “We want to prevent the AfD.” Germany is establishing its presence in companies. “All unions must participate more in the debate.”

Chairman Verdi warned of the consequences if the AfD succeeds in state and local elections in East Germany: “Several regions could go to the AfD. This is worrying because the AfD is the employer. Once a president is appointed Municipal or district director, the party appoints its own specialists in the management of municipal companies.

On Tuesday, Diakoni President Schoch made it clear that convinced AfD voters had no place in the Protestant Social Welfare Association. Unlike trade unions, many church-supported enterprises are so-called trend corporations and have relatively great freedom in deciding who they employ.
