An Agreement, which enables the implementation of the new, business sustainable, retail operating model, has been signed today by the representatives of the three leading unions operating in INA (INAŠ – Oil Industries Trade Union, Oil Industry Union – SING, and Autonomous Trade Union of Workers in Energy, Chemistry and Non-Metal Industry of Croatia- EKN), the representatives of the INA Works Council, and the representative of the INA Maloprodajni Servisi d.o.o. (INA MS).
The Agreement, which is a result of the constructive social dialogue, determines the framework and the conditions of the new retail operating model within the company INA MS, as well as the necessary preconditions for the implementation of the said model. The company INA MS is a part of INA Group and is in full ownership of INA.
On signing the Agreement, signatories agreed that the established model is business viable on one hand, while on the other, it ensures employment security and an adequate level of employees’ rights within the INA Group as confirmed by the relevant Collective Agreement. The changes brought by the Agreement will enable INA to be more competitive on retail market and will enable a space for continuation of a strong investment cycle started few years ago.
The Agreement provides for all employees at INA’s retail locations to be offered a transfer to a new company within the INA Group; with continuity of service, material rights adjusted to labor market conditions, offering salaries still competitive in the retail market and a six-month compensation for the difference in salaries. In order to make the new model viable in business sense, the Agreement stresses the importance of maintaining the level of retail quality service as a key prerequisite for the realization of a new model. The Agreement is agreed with the condition that significant number of employees decides to be transferred to the new company and that retail quality service do not significantly decrease. In parallel with the Agreement, conditions of the Collective Agreement, which would be applied in INA MS, have also been agreed upon.
The signing of the Agreement launched the preparations for the implementation of the new retail model and it is expected that, if all the necessary preconditions are met, INA MS would take over the management of first petrol station in January 2016.
The Agreement does not cover 60 INA petrol stations, which based on the previous decisions of the INA Management Board, have been, or will be, managed by private entrepreneurs within the “Entrepreneurs model”.
