With the participation of akim of the region Gali Iskaliev, a meeting of the tripartite commission on labor relations in the company KPO B.V. and its contractors was held.
The issue of remuneration and other types of remuneration, wage increases for workers in companies was considered. They also talked about increasing the number of local specialists and supporting Kazakhstani business, improving the quality of collective agreements and the need to activate the work of trade unions.
The akim of the region demanded that large contractors identify from their senior staff people who will be constantly present directly on the territory of the West Kazakhstan region, who have the authority to make operational decisions of their workforce, who speak the Kazakh language.
It was also said that the akimat of the region will assist in solving production issues only to those companies that treat the residents of the region responsibly and pay taxes to the local budget.
Unfortunately, there are a number of companies that use the infrastructure of the region, harm the ecology of the West Kazakhstan region, while paying taxes at the place of their head offices in other regions. Such companies were offered to open branches or representative offices in the West Kazakhstan region, without any additional costs for their maintenance.
At the meeting, it was decided to create a commission, which will include representatives of KPO B.V., a number of major contractors, the akimat of the region. Within 2 weeks, the commission will present an analysis of the level of wages in contracting organizations and proposals to increase wages for low-paid workers.
Another task of the commission will be to prepare proposals for the training of local personnel to work at the Karachaganak field.
