Must Read

After many months of negotiations the company ‘Gorenje Valjevo’ signed a collective agreement with the Autonomous Metal Workers’ Trade Union – Trade Union ‘Gorenje doo Valjevo’ and Association of Free and Independent Trade Unions – Trade Union ‘ASNS Gorenje’. This is the second collective agreement, valid for three years.
The agreement sets the ground for the implementation of new systematization while improving legal regulations at the same time, through which clear rules for the calculation of bonuses based on achieved business results have been adopted.
‘This new collective agreement is the result of mature social dialogue which is beneficial for all employees and the company. Transparent social dialogue is a key factor for the development of both employees and the company. European factories in Slovenia, Serbia and Czech Republic are extremely important for the production capacity of this group with 80,000 employees around the world, which is the leader in the development of new industrial technology’, said the Vice-President of Hisense International and Executive Vice-President of Hisense Europe – Stanka Pejanović.
According to her, continuous cooperation with trade unions contributed to stable business during 2020 when additional 600 workers were employed.
President of the Autonomous Metal Workers’ Trade Union – Slobodan Stanojlović underlined that it was a perfect example of how the interests of both employees and employer could be reconciled through social dialogue. He added that the first collective agreement, signed three years ago, provided for additional days of annual leave for different categories of workers, paid leave in various situations, as well as the coverage of employee’s training expenses.
In 2018 company Hisense became a majority owner of Gorenje, with this of the factory in Valjevo, too. It started working 15 years ago. Today it’s got 1,900 employees and it cooperates with 60 local suppliers.
