Burg Giebichenstein Staff Council

Welcome to the webinfo of the Staff Council of Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design Halle. Here you will find an overview of what the Staff Council does, who it represents and how or where you can contact the Staff Council.

The Staff Council is newly elected every five years and is currently composed of seven members. The work of the Staff Council is regulated by the Saxony-Anhalt State Staff Representation Act (PersVG LSA) in the version published on March 16, 2004. All employed members of the university, including all student employees, can get advice by the Staff Council. We monitor compliance with collective bargaining agreements, laws and service agreements and can represent you in this context vis-à-vis the university management, the immediate management staff and colleagues.

If there are conflicts, questions, hints or suggestions - we are happy to advise, help and support you! All discussions are confidential and are subject to the obligation of secrecy in accordance with §10 of the Saxony-Anhalt State Personnel Representation Act.

Since we do the work of the staff council in addition to our actual work here at the company, there are no fixed office hours. However, you can visit us at any time at our personal workplaces or contact us by email pr(at)  burg-halle.  de. We will answer all your inquiries and messages as soon as possible.
