Employees who fall into a Covid-19 risk group will have their contracts suspended. This measure was adopted in the face of the coronavirus pandemic and is valid as of Monday (13).
LG Electronics said it will reduce the wages and wages of workers at the Taubate plant (Sao Paulo Brazil). In addition, it will temporarily suspend the contracts of employees of the coronavirus risk group (Covid-19).
According to the company, which has around 1,000 employees at the Taubate plant, the measure will be effective as of next Monday (13). The agreement was in consensus with the Taubate Metal Workers Unio.
LG said it would cut wages and wages by 25% of workers for three months. The measure covers production, administrative and unit leadership employees.
In addition, the company will suspend the employment contract of employees of the risk group for two months, under the terms of Provisional Measure 936, which establishes the Emergency Program for Maintaining Employment and Income.
During the period of suspension of contracts, the company will not discount the monthly fee for medical assistance, nor the co-participation in this period for employees of this group. The number of workers in the risk group was not reported.
In addition to these employees, since the 23rd of March, the young apprentices who work at the unit went on vacation and the interns, in recess.
Since March, the company has been taking measures to prevent coronavirus, such as collective vacations for a group of workers.
By note, the company said that “it continues in negotiations with the Union to always seek the most appropriate measures in this pandemic moment, with the objective of keeping the work environment safe and helping to prevent the transmission of the virus.”
