KOVO Labor Union conferences start
The months of March and April stand out in the work of the KOVO Labor Union at U. S. Steel Kosice as the period of assessment of labor union activity
during the preceding year. The first two of the twelve grass-root organizations at the steelworks balanced up their work last week, and the series of discussions continues with the turn of the
Steel Plants this week. Next week the union members at the Radiators and Pipes, Hot Rolling Mill and Coated Products and Tin Mill have their conferences, with further meetings planned in April.
These culminate on April 24 with the KOVO Labor Union Council Conference.
Apart from assessing the results of their work during the past year, the union members also adopt new objectives and tasks for the coming period. The hot topics are
collective bargaining and contracts of work for the employees of the steelmaking company, developments in grass-root membership in connection with the decreasing workforce at the steelworks, and
professionalization of the labor unions as approved by the latest KOVO Labor Union Congress.
