ADEXA is the trade union for all pharmaceutical employees (pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, etc.), and also for trainees and students. We negotiate the salaries and working conditions in German public pharmacies with the employers’ federations.

Our organisation

ADEXA’s head office with the administrative and legal staff is located in Hamburg. The organisation was founded in 1954. ADEXA is not affiliated to the German Confederation of Trade Unions (DGB, Deutscher Gewerkschaftsbund) or any of its unions.

Within ADEXA, each profession in the public pharmacy is represented by its own group. There are also 4 regional ADEXA boards.

Most of the pharmaceutical employees in Germany are women. This is reflected in a high percentage of female members within ADEXA.
