German drug store chain Schlecker, long attracting negative publicity for its poor payment of staff and the leak of personal information of its customers, has stepped in it again – with the emergence of a list of workers it seemingly wants to fire.

The paper, called “personnel quality measures,” is, according to Der Spiegel magazine, 20 pages long, and filled with the names of staff members who will be kept an eye on.

Some of the names are followed by two dates, the magazine says. The first is the point at which the person concerned came to the attention of the Schlecker management, says the workers' council at the firm, and the other being the desired departure date of that person.

The list was drawn up on the orders of Schlecker personnel director Michael Strisciulli, according to the Verdi trades union – and is steadily being worked through.

Many of those who feature have worked for the firm for years, or have become unpopular with management, and all have reached the higher echelons of the pay scale.

An email from one manager notes that those listed will, “kept in focus”.

Initially Schlecker told Der Spiegel the list was a normal shift plan but later admitted it was a file connected to a critical discussion with Mr Strisciulli, concerning improved performance as well as performance-related warnings. The company said it would be ‘correcting' excessively harsh measures.
