KULZ Funds 70 Workers’ Stay in Crimea

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, June 21, 2016. More than seventy employees of Kamensk-Uralsky Foundry Plant/KULZ (a member enterprise of Ural Vagon Zavod Corporation) are going on paid vacations in the Crimea; their stay will be funded by the company trade union, the corporation’s press service reports.

‘This is the third time our plant and the trade union are funding employees’ two-week stay at Alushta Health Resort, meals and spa included. Eligible to apply for this are people who have worked at the plant for at least five years (or much less, for those working in health-affecting conditions; these applications are considered on a case-by-case basis). Our health committee (the decision-maker) tries to select candidates from all employee types, including blue- and white-collar workers, engineering cadre, and so on. The trade union, with the final say in the process, always makes sure the trips are handed out fairly. This year, forty out of seventy 25,000-ruble stays were offered to blue-collar workers (people from the zinc-coating department, turners, technicians, bridge crane operators), just like in the previous years,’ the press service says.

The plant allocated some 1.8m RUR to fund its employees’ Crimea vacations this year.
