Industrial relations

In 2017, the relationship with the trade union organisations at a national and local levels was characterised by several meetings regarding plans for business evolution and new organisational structures, following up the sale of the Stogit “Plants and Technical Services” business unit to Snam Rete Gas S.p.A.

As regards to transportation and storage, the Integra project was initiated, which calls for integrating side activities of the operational companies to develop and exploit the specific skills.

Regarding the transportation business, the Smart Gas technical committee’s work continued, seeking for a more rational scheduling of the operations with the goal of analysing the technical aspects of the project.

Regarding the regasification business, meetings were held with the Trade Unions, nationally and locally, in order to share and discuss topics inherent to the business evolution.

The bargaining dynamics, consistent with the provisions of the 2013 Industrial Relations Protocol, whose reasoning were imbued with the concept of strengthening second-level negotiations, led the Parties to define productivity and profitability indicators for the 2017 Participation Bonus for all Snam Companies. The national labour agreement applied to the Group was renewed at the beginning of the year.

Furthermore, all the Snam Group’s companies signed the implementation agreement pursuant to the Article 4 of the Italian Law 92/2012 for an early exit of workers who meet the requirements prescribed by the law.
