Cooperation with trade unions

The Company actively develops its partnership with trade union organisations. Gazprom Neft is committed to ensuring greater involvement by trade unions in the Company’s activities and expanding the scope of duties of trade union leaders, which enables them to protect the long-term interests of employees taking into account the balanced interests of all stakeholders.

Gazprom Neft’s social obligations are enshrined in local regulatory acts (LRA) and collective bargaining agreements that govern social and labour relations between the employer and employees. These LRA and agreements reflect both health and safety issues and the obligations that the Company undertakes in this regard with respect to its employees.

Trade union representatives are actively involved in work to develop a culture of occupational safety in the Company’s production activities, discussions concerning changes to the Company’s social benefits system, meetings of HR service executives and activities to create safe work conditions. The Company has a Youth Commission that protects the interests of young workers and new young specialists taking part in adaptation programmes.

Gazprom Neft takes part in forming industry-based agreements for each area of the Company’s business jointly with industry-based trade unions and the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs.
