The Management Board of Zagreb Holding has cancelled the Basic Collective Agreement with the employees of the Company due to a justified change of circumstances in the context of the legal entity’s business operations, numerous legislative changes on the national level, as well as for the purpose of ensuring compliance with the legal standards of the European Union and operational functionality of higher quality.
The former Basic Collective Agreement signed in the year 2002 had to be cancelled also due to inability of collective bargaining with trade unions, which were unable to meet legal requirements prescribed by law and failed to deliver the required proof on representation authorisation.
The Management Board remains open to continue collective bargaining with the employees’ representatives, announcing standardisation as regards duties and complexity of each job position. By means of the new Collective Agreement, which implies economic optimisation, allocation of financial resources would be made more sustainable. The new Collective Agreement also strives for significant improvement in the management of available human resources, as well as more efficient business operations. The Group is obligated to undertake internal organisational changes due to its social responsibility and general objective state of the economy.
The rights arising from the cancelled Basic Collective Agreement shall be in force for the next six months.
