“Though the new agreement was not created easily, we appreciate the fair approach of our social partners during the process of looking for mutual solutions,” Scott Buckiso, President of U. S. Steel Košice, s.r.o. said during the signing ceremony. “One of these solutions is the principle that if the financial performance of the company increases, the employees will also profit from this success by a higher variable wage and by a one-time benefit as well, if the given financial results are achieved. In employee evaluation, higher importance will be also placed on their individual performance,” added President Buckiso.
