8-HOUR SHIFT REINTRODUCED IN APTIV

Must Read

Acting on the order of the Labour Inspection, management of the factory Aptiv from Leskovac made a decision to reintroduce the 8-hour shift, instead of the 12-hour one. In the talks with the Autonomous Metal Workers Union of Serbia (AMUS), they said they made a mistake.
AMUS President, Zoran Marković told the media that 8-hour working time would be introduced on July 5 and additional bonuses were provided.
As Markovic explained, the employer violated the Labour Law and that’s why misdemeanour measure was in place. The problem in Aptiv emerged because workers had been absent for a long time and those who worked were under an enormous pressure because they had to endure 12-hour shift.
President of the trade union organisation in Aptiv, Marko Todorović said that at the moment around 900 out of 4000 workers were on a sick leave and Marković added that even workers from Romania, Turkey and Poland were invited to come to Leskovac. Trade unionsts were told that Aptiv received a late order and they were forced to find a way to respect the deadline. More than 10 buses are transporting 4,000 workers to work in Aptiv.
Asked by JUGMedia, who a ‘softer’ negotiator was – representatives of Aptiv or Yura, Marković said that the management of Aptiv was conscious of the consequences of violating law and Yura did not respect the laws of the Republic of Serbia.
