Gurten, 23rd December 2015 – Just under ten years ago, the idea of introducing a works council contribution gave birth to the FillCard.

All activities and issues are coordinated and implemented by a core team. Ideas and suggestions from all employees are always welcome and frequently taken into account. The monthly fee for the FillCard is 2 euros for employees and 1 euro for apprentices. These contributions are matched by the company. The contributions paid are used exclusively in accordance with the statutes of the works council contribution process.
