Former LEAG trainees switch to Deutsche Bahn (DB). LEAG cooperates with DB to ensure the employment in the region of Lusatia. New DB employees will be qualifying for the maintenance of ICE (Intercity Express) trains. The qualification process starts now so it will be completed before the opening of the depot in 2024.

Eleven industrial mechanics, mechatronics and electronic technicians is a sum of new employees announced to move to DB in Cottbus as part of the structural changes in Lusatia. Plans are for more than 80 other employees to shift from LEAG to DB employment. This exchange of workforce is based on the cooperation agreement between the two companies as they work closely together.

DB HR Director Martin Seiler said about the project: “Welcoming our new employees is another milestone on the way to Strong Rail. We want to get more trains on the rails and actively shape the traffic revolution. This also includes the commissioning of the new maintenance workshop in Cottbus. For this we need many committed colleagues and we look forward to many new positions. We create here high-quality industrial jobs. The new DB plant in Cottbus will be a job engine. With the cooperation agreement, LEAG and DB have forged an alliance for the future!”

By the year of the opening in 2024 the plan is to bring over more than 500 new employees and trainees and another 700 positions will be added in 2026. The new high-tech plant in Cottbus plans to have around 1,200 highly qualified industrial jobs and apprenticeships.

Jörg Steinbach, Brandenburg Minister for Economic Affairs, Labor and Energy: "I am very pleased that the first former LEAG trainees can start a new phase in their working lives at the DB plant in Cottbus. With their close cooperation, both companies are shaping the future and prospects for the people in the Lusatia region in the course of the structural change. The core concern of the Structural Strengthening Act is filled with life - words are followed by deeds. People who are affected by structural change get real and secure perspectives in their region. Lusatia has a future.”

LEAG HR Director, Jörg Waniek commented on the situation by saying that the alliance between DB and LEAG is to secure long-term industrial jobs in the region and is now taking the concrete shape with the first employee transfer. It goes hand in hand with the fact that as LEAG is the largest training company in Lusatia it has a responsibility of giving the trainees long-term prospects in the region. Be it in the power plants, new business areas of LEAG or with partners such as Deutsche Bahn. He further added: “At the same time, we agree with Deutsche Bahn to use the LEAG training center in Jänschwalde in partnership with the innovative railway location of Cottbus in order to secure skilled workers for the economic and industrial region of Lusatia, and also to create training opportunities for regional companies.”
