PepsiCo-Jordan, workers union ink agreement
Amman, January 6, 2013
PepsiCo-Jordan recently signed a new one-year agreement with the General Union of Food Industry Employees, backing its workforce with additional employment benefits.
By virtue of the agreement, PepsiCo-Jordan will raise all its personnel’s salaries starting from January 1.
The company has rewarded its employees for the second consecutive year based on its Performance Program as well as on the results of L3 and L1 Stratis employees’ performance during the year 2012.
PepsiCo-Jordan relies on the new pay scale to reward its L3 Stratis employees and those ranked below. The company will continue to allocate its 13th and 14th salaries for its entire staff in keeping with the union’s request.
“Through our partnership with the Union, we aim to provide a motivating work environment that corresponds with our plans to broaden the range of employment benefits we provide to our people,” said Nidal Hamam, PepsiCo-Jordan’s general manager.
“Despite the challenges that we faced in 2012, PepsiCo-Jordan continued to invest in expanding its production lines, integrating the latest global technologies and modernizing its delivery fleet. The company has also invested in its human resources, safety procedures and public services, all of which has helped improve its operations and product delivery.”
Union president Abu Khadra commended PepsiCo-Jordan for its commitment to providing stable work conditions for its employees by not only safeguarding the best interests of the Company itself, but also those of its people.
He urged local companies to invest more in their human resources if they wish to raise their work capacity, productivity and competitiveness. – TradeArabia News Service
