Labor rights and interaction with trade unions
We apply unified principles and approaches in our interactions with personnel in all the countries and regions in which we operate, and always take into account the specifics and characteristics of the local culture.
In order to prevent violations of the labor rights of employees, we develop social partnerships with trade union organizations. Our main partner is the International Association of Trade Union Organizations of PJSC LUKOIL (IATUO). The main objective of the IATUO in the area of observing labor rights is to implement preventative measures to safeguard the rights and interests of employees.
As part of social partnerships, the scope of the social commitments of the Company and trade union organizations that are parties to agreements is revised and updated on a regular basis. For example, when concluding an additional agreementAn agreement between the Employer and the Trade Union of Public Joint-Stock Company “Oil Company ‘LUKOIL’” for 2015–2020. in October 2017, the parties agreed to raise, starting in 2018, the level of certain social benefits in Russian organizations for non-working pensioners and employees on childcare leave with children aged 1.5 to three years.
