The transfer of employees of German energy companies to a special mode of operation was called "barracks conditions"


The German press published material on unprecedented measures that are being taken in the country's energy sector. Commentator Annette Beutler in Die Zeit writes that large energy companies are forced to “optimize staff performance” and take measures to maintain the safe functioning of critical infrastructure.


In particular, an example is given of how, in one of the German energy companies, the personnel was transferred to the following operating mode: a 6-hour shift, after which 18 hours of rest and an indispensable delivery of samples for coronavirus. And so - 8 days. After that, employees receive 4 days off.

The material says that energy suppliers to the single market in Germany are switching to a regime of isolation of workers. For example, the large energy company E.on, located in Essen, decided to take the path of “optimization of work”. She arranged special dormitories near the network control centers. In these hostels, which the locals have already called "barracks", groups of employees are located.

Head of the company Johannes Theissen:

Yes, this is a kind of barracks working conditions. But now it is necessary.

Meanwhile, German experts are trying to give a forecast on the country's economy for the current year. Most agree that German GDP is expected to decline. According to pessimistic forecasts, the fall of the German economy may reach the level of 20% of GDP, which has not happened since the Second World War.

        Those that are "not Germans" are mostly at home. But those of them who went to work, adopt the traits of the indigenous population

        The Germans themselves were no longer completely Germans.

      Absolutely right! And I'm waiting for us to come up with this. As soon as power outages begin, chaos will begin - there is no water, no washing, no cooking or charging gadgets, and most importantly, there will be no (without water) sewage. The latter factor requires special attention. Water and food can be bought, but with this thing - not everyone has convenience on the street. And I don’t want the porch or the lawn to become such a place.

        The most effective punishment system for the average person (nationality does not matter) is money punishment.
        Penalties start from 200Euro and can reach up to 25000 Euro.

    German post so that employees have less contact with each other, divided their employees into two streams. That is, at first one, early, arrives at the base, loads and leaves the difference mail, then, two hours later, the others. Yes, they finish work later, but what to do?

    I get the impression that coronavirus is used as a bugaboo, to frighten and distract the population from an inevitable economic collapse similar to the Great Depression. Mobilizing the people to fight the enemy is a win-win means of fighting riots. Sit at home and endure, observe self-isolation !!!
    sad

      Yeah ... They tried, it seems, to arrange a small controlled fireman, but the elements escaped into the open. Now we urgently need to cover the tracks, blaming someone else.

    In Moscow, the same measures are being prepared. Beds were brought for the employees of the CHP.
    It seems they plan to work on a shift for 7 days.

      Life support systems must be maintained in working condition, as an extreme measure, complete isolation from the outside world at the enterprise.

    6-hour work shift, after which 18 hours of rest and the mandatory delivery of samples for coronavirus.

    In principle, it is normal, if not spoiled by the "benefits of civilization."
    I’ve lived in a trailer for 6 years. 2 weeks of work, Saturday-Sunday day off. And in a new way ...belay

      Good time, Vasily. You had a very liberal shift. 30 on 30 (at best, usually 45 on 45 (my record is 78 days) and no days off and holidays. Eight-month wagon (the only one is very warm and comfortable in winter but in summer as an oven).

        laughing , today I am already the 118th day, but this is all a mess, here people sit for 8-9 months, my record is 150 days, though two Sundays a month is a day off, but sometimes a week goes by without a day off. I feel that I’ll break the record because of quarantine.

          What we tolerate is a nightmare for civilized Europeans. They whine and complain.

          Good Dmitry. We have diesel engines and trawl drivers from October to May, as agreed with the management (who wanted to build in the summer). I have pressure beyond the Pole after a month begins to jump like Gazmanov on stage. Well, these are his watches.

        It hurts a liberal shift you had.

        I say: sin to the Alemans to complain!

    I wrote about such measures in the comments to the article about the French employees working at the nuclear power plant, they poked a finger at me - like how I imagine it and how poor relatives will be promoting separation.
    But I imagine something like that.

    Many shift workers from the former republics of the USSR, especially from Ukraine, work in the Far North.
    And how to get out of the situation when many are at home?

    it's a kind of barracks working conditions
    How used to live without problems and worries. True, in the last three years, migrants have created problems for the Germans, but for some reason the Germans "persistently" endured all the hardships associated with this. 8 days for 6 hours of work with accommodation in a hostel, so it’s like a mini-shift. That's when the economic decline really reaches 20%, then you can cry in a vest.
