The average monthly salary of a production operator amounted to €1,007, including bonuses and additional allowances.” All salaries stated are gross amounts.

The carmaker also agreed with unionists on increasing the monthly salary by a fixed sum, €53, for employees who have worked for the company for more than 10 years . Loyal employees may, taking into consideration new rules of flexibility, earn up to €94 more in a month.

Currently, the Trnava carmaker is finishing filling a fourth, weekend shift. It will be composed of two or three work shifts. In the first case, the plant will operate also on Saturdays and Sundays, the in the second case, on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Thus, Peugeot plans to create 800 new jobs. “In this regime, workers appreciate more flexibility when organising their lives,” the carmaker stated, as cited by Sme.
