"Zakarpathaz" allocated 4.5 million hryvnias for social benefits
Late last year, a new collective bargaining agreement between employees and the Board of the "Zakarpathaz" PJSC was concluded, which entered into force on January 1, 2014 and will be valid for the next five years. During the 2014, welfare payments under the new contract will amount to 4.5 million hryvnias.
For the first time, the collective agreement was developed and adopted as openly as possible. Not only the company's employees, leaders of trade union organizations, but also representatives of industry and labor unions were involved in the process of its preparation.
The conclusion of the collective bargaining agreement for 5 years shows that the company has a strategic vision of development, looking forward to a long-term perspective and can guarantee its employees and their families stability in the current difficult economic situation.
Today the company employs over 1400 people, and the company's benefits package is among the best in Transcarpathia. Thus, it provides for payments of cash benefits for health rehabilitation, food subsidies, financial assistance on marriage and childbirth, improving the training of specialists, recreation for employees and their families.
"In a continuous decline in gas transportation and unfavorable economic situation, the "Zakarpathaz" PJSC is one of the few companies in the region, which guarantees its employees legal employment and good benefits package," - the secretary of the company staff conferece Vasyl Symulyk said.
Collective agreement governs the production, employment and socio-economic relations in the company.
In addition, the collective agreement may provide for additional guarantees and social and welfare incentives.
