INA: Workers' rights are protected

The INA oil company said on Tuesday that its new model of retail management was launched in accordance with the law and in cooperation with the workers' representatives, adding that the retail network remained in the company's ownership and the workers' rights remained protected.

The statement followed a press conference by the New Solidarity union on Monday at which it was said that the company had violated several laws, agreements and conventions on workers' rights as a result of which 800 workers had been laid off at the start of this month.

INA said that all the retail assets, including petrol stations, remained in its ownership and that under the new management model only petrol operations would be managed by the  Maloprodajni Servisi (Retail Services) company, which is fully owned by INA.

INA recalled that the new retail management model was based on an agreement signed last summer by three unions signatories to the collective agreement for INA. The New Solidarity union was not among them.
