Rosenergoatom Concern JSC has evolved an efficient system to interact with base-level trade unions in the nuclear plants and HQ, all of which are united as the Association of base-level trade unions, and as regards part of the Russian National Trade Union of the Nuclear Power Industry. The association helps to pursue an integral and balanced policy that represents and protects the lawful rights and interests of the Concern’s employees.

As a form of interaction between the management of the Concern and the unions of permanent corporate events (SCM) on social security, employment and recruitment are convened quarterly at one of the nuclear power plants.

Such meetings are attended by executives and employees from HR and social units on the one part, and by chairpersons of trade unions on the other. The parties meet to discuss vital issues of employment and social policy, such as wage increases, medical insurance, working conditions, housing, youth policy, veterans policy, and so on.

The central event of the year is the annual corporate conference, convened to debate and approve the “Corporate Agreement of Rosenergoatom in Employment and Social Relations” – the result of joint efforts by unions and the employer. The Corporate Agreement regulates employer-employees relations, and is the basis for collective contracts later signed in all branch companies. Collective contracts have been signed and are effective in all operating nuclear plants and construction projects, and in the HQ Administration.
