The coronavirus crisis doesn’t stop either Ferrero: as happened last year, i circa 6 thousand employees of the company will receive a business bonus from 2,200 euros gross in paychecks. This is what the agreement signed between the management and the trade unions in the last few hours provides, which in a note express “full satisfaction for results achieved in a particularly difficult and complicated exercise due to effects of the pandemic“. And they applaud the “initiatives implemented to deal with the Covid emergency”. The bonus, the unions clarify, will be paid with the skills of October.
The meeting between the Nutella industry management and the main trade unions took place via videoconference. Two parameters are taken into consideration to determine the premium: the economic result, unique for the entire company, which determines 30 percent; and the management result, linked to the performance of each plant / area, which determines the remaining 70. The agreement therefore provides for a bonus of 2,200 euros gross, almost the maximum possible. A recognition that confirms on the one hand the excellent work done by employees, on the other hand testifies how some economic sectors (including the food sector) have been less affected by the effects of the lockdown in recent months.
“The pandemic and the lockdown have profoundly affected the daily habits of Italians, however Ferrero products, although they may be considered ‘non-essential’ by the public debate, have achieved positive results on average, maintaining a very high level of satisfaction even during this delicate period ”commented the trade union representatives of Fai-Cisl, Flai-Cgil and Uila-Uil Franco Ferria, Andrea Basso and Alberto Battaglino. “In this historical period in which some political orientations and Confindustria make disqualifying proposals for work with negative repercussions on rights, protections and oppose the renewal of national contracts – they conclude – union bargaining acquires even more importance and value to see the rights, commitment and professionalism of male and female workers recognized ”.
