The non-tariff salaries in the public ARD broadcaster RBB are to be noticeably reduced according to the will of the board of directors.


The top salaries and the high number of non-tariff employees at Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg (RBB) were criticized in the midst of the crisis surrounding the director Patricia Schlesinger, who was fired without notice.

New start at RBB

The new head of the board of directors, Benjamin Ehlers, said on Friday after the meeting of the broadcaster’s supervisory board: “RBB is facing a new structural start, and the question of top salaries has an important substantive and high symbolic meaning. From the point of view of the Board of Directors, a noticeable reduction in these salaries is out of the question.”

Ehlers continued: “We don’t want to lose sight of the public service as a possible benchmark, but we mustn’t ignore the situation in the broadcasting sector in general either.” The final decision on the new concept is expected to be made on July 11th become. It is already clear that the number of non-tariff positions at the station will be reduced from 31 to 17.
