Bratislava-based carmaker Volkswagen Slovakia will pay its staffers a 13th salary as of June.

“Employees will receive the benefit, which the carmaker has been paying for nearly three decades in compliance with the collective agreement, a month earlier this year, and it will be €100 more,” the company stated, as quoted by the SITA newswire.

The average gross monthly salary, discluding the company’s management, is €1,954. The 13th salary represents 60-65 percent of the employee’s average monthly wage, depending on their length of employment at Volkswagen Slovakia.

The 13th salary has to be paid with May wages, which means that employees will receive it in their accounts in early June. To get the 13th salary, an employee must have worked at the company for at least two years without interruption, SITA reported.

“The 14th salary has also been bargained in the collective agreement over the years, with the so-called Christmas bonus being paid at the end of the year and amounting to up to 100 percent, depending on the number of years an employee has worked for the company,” the carmaker added, as quoted by SITA.

At the same time, staffers will receive a bonus, which amounted to an average of €1,630 last year, for positive economic results.
