Goals & Purposes the ZDS stands for: Shaping the future

"The best way to predict the future is to shape it." These words of the politician and Nobel Peace Prize winner Willy Brandt (1913-92) inspires and demonstrates what goals for us in the ZDS means: Shaping the future. Get to know our goals or join them: As chimney sweep women, chimney sweeps and as members of the ZDS.
To openly view, recognize and shape the future, the ZDS performs many tasks. As a union, we conclude collective agreements and support our members in labor and social law. In addition, as a professional association, we also attach great importance to good education, training and further education in the truest sense of the word. With the personal commitment of many members and a broad commitment on all levels, we are committed to environmental protection and environmental protection. We clearly associate this central theme with the future of our honorable profession of chimney sweep. For this and many other highly relevant topics and informative added value, we publish the trade journal "Der Schornsteinfeger" eleven times a year. In combination with many, regional newsletters on current topics, we keep our members informed and fully up to date with the latest information.
The main goals and tasks of the ZDS can hardly be summarized clearly, because with heart, commitment and enthusiasm we devote ourselves to many, important and constantly current challenges.
