Propuestas para Proyecto de Contrato Colectivo 2016-2018

About this project of Collective Contract

APEX-Vitacura-Paranal Union sent to ESO Management the Project of Collective Contract for the Collective Bargaining 2016.

This project was developed collecting ideas, proposals and suggestions of Union members between December 2015 and October 2016.

These proposals were discussed in Union assemblies during last months. In each assembly, attendance was recorded and signed by each participant.

After those assemblies, a second iteration of improvements and corrections were performed; several modifications done in order to achieve clearer and accurate explanations and new articles included based on suggestions by Union members.

A few reviewers chosen from APEX, Vitacura and Paranal performed a third iteration which demanded new modifications.

This version finally reviewed by Union board, conveys the hopes of a better working environment, developing ideas and solutions applicable to all Local Staff.
