SOKA-BAU

SOKA-BAU is a paritarian institution established by the social partners of the German construction industry. It safeguards the holiday leave entitlements of all construction workers in Germany, operates the industry-wide occupational pension fund and is funding vocational training in the sector.

SOKA-BAU unites two institutions under its umbrella: the Urlaubs- und Lohnausgleichskasse der Bauwirtschaft responsible for the holiday leave scheme and the vocational training scheme (founded in 1949) and the Zusatzversorgungskasse des Baugewerbes AG responsible for the occupational pension scheme (founded in 1957).
