This morning, April 29, employees of the enterprise "ArcelorMittal Kryvyi Rih" went to a protest action. Hundreds of Kryvyi Rih residents demand that the management raise their wages by 30% and improve working conditions. Representatives of several trade union organizations of Arcelor are participating in the action.
Last week, AMKR employees also attended a rally. They signed a resolution of the rally, which gave the leadership until April 28 to fulfill their demands.
One of them is to raise wages by 30%, because, according to the employees of the enterprise, the last time they received a wage increase was in 2019.
March 30, representatives of 11 trade unions uniting workers of ArcelorMittal Kryvyi Rih, met with Chief Executive Officer Mauro Longobardo and HR Director Yulia Chermazovich to discuss salary increases.
Previously it was reported that the largest the mining and metallurgical enterprise of Ukraine, from May 1, increases the salaries of all its employees and employees of its subsidiaries by 5%. In addition, a differentiated salary increase is planned for those categories of workers whose wages are below the market median.
"A 5% increase in salaries is disrespectful to workers," said the workers of the metallurgical plant.
