Dec 11, 2002
The President of the Agrokor Group Ivica Todorić, the President of the PPDIV Union Josip Pavić and the President of the Croatian Union of Commerce Ms. Ana Knežević signed an Annex to the Collective Agreement in the Presence of the Directors of Agrokor's companies and journalists. By this Annex the workers' rights have been increased. Agrokor has undertaken to bear the costs of the additional health insurance as well as the costs of a medical check-up for all employees including additional specialist checks for women. The Agrokor Group and both Unions are pioneers of collective negotiations. Agrokor signed its first Collective Agreement already in 1996. It is Agrokor's aim to jointly with the Unions create good conditions for all its employees with a view to realizing development together with them, said Ivica Todorić on this occasion. Ana Knežević pointed out how glad she was that Agrokor immediately accepted all the proposed rights for its employees and Josip Pavić was equally satisfied with the Annex signed, noting that the Agrokor group was an example of a high-quality, continuous social dialogue, this Annex being a step forward as well.
