Volkswagen sent the following response to the Resource Centre:

"Volkswagen is making every effort to find a mutually acceptable solution, which is why FAW‑VW continues to maintain close contact with the subcontracted workers from the temporary employment agency. In general, the subcontracted workers are paid according to the same system used for the core workforce.  In addition, other offers have been made, such as taking the subcontracted workers onto the company payroll, in line with certain guidelines. FAW-VW will also be putting pressure on the temporary employment agency to improve the support they provide to their employees and their social security benefits, and to protect their rights."
