“Our employees last year, with their commitment and flexibility, contributed towards VW Slovakia’s excellent results,” said Wilfried von Rath, VW SK’s board for personnel issues, as quoted by TASR. “They deserve an appropriate reward for this.”

Rath added that the company went to the limits of what it was able to do in paying out the bonuses.

Originally, the trade unions demanded a €370-hike in the year-end bonuses in addition to payments of €1,300 received for results in 2012. They pointed out that their colleagues in Germany received year-end bonuses of €7,200 last year, while those in Hungary got €3,000, TASR wrote.
