All 15 years of ArcelorMittal’s work in Ukraine, we fully comply with the requirements of the Enterprise Collective Agreement. On May 1, all employees received a wage increase, and before the staff were paid the “thirteenth salary” as a bonus Last year, we invested $ 14,100,000 in health and safety and $ 296,300,000 in production development. in a pandemic, the company fulfills all obligations “obligations to its employees, the local community and the state in the form of significant tax payments amounting to billions of hryvnias. On the contrary, in the published text, the submission from the PMGU PO to the head, in fact, demands to cancel the increase in wages for all employees of the enterprise, has already entered into force. We once again call on trade unions to immediately start a constructive dialogue, including on further improving social guarantees for our workers.
