People are important and our main resource. For this reason we promote international labour standards wherever we operate.
We promote international labour standards to protect our people - the real source of our energy.
From our policy ‘Our People’
The progressive and now structural decline of the refining sector in Italy and Europe and the increasingly competitive environment in the chemicals sector have made it necessary also for us to review the organisational processes of some of the major business in the sector. In this context, the Industrial Relations department has supported and facilitated the actions of the business areas in the different phases of change in labour standards. Also at the international level, the sector has been characterised by processes for reorganisation and to improve efficiency. In particular, in the midstream sector, which includes the transport and storage of oil, there has been a transformation and consequent reorganisation of the European business and the operating structure of Eni companies.
The Global Framework Agreement (GFA) - with the FILCTEM, CGIL, FEMCA, CISL, UILTEC and UIL trade unions and with IndustriALL Global Union on international industrial relations and corporate social responsibility - was renewed on 6 July 2016, during the work of Eni’s European Corporate Committee, which took place in Barcelona on 5-6-7 July 2016.
The signing of the agreement was a confirmation of Eni’s positive industrial relations: the company is committed to supporting and conducting its activities in compliance with the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the ILO Conventions, the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, the principles of the Global Compact and the UN Guiding Principles for Business & Human Rights. What is new compared with the previous agreement, particularly with regard to issues related to the implementation of the agreement and the industrial relations model, is the introduction of a Coordinator and the involvement of local workers’ representatives at the annual meeting.
The agreement on the European Health Safety Observatory with the Filctem CGIL, Femca CISL, Uiltec, UIL and the European Trade Union Federation IndustriAll European trade unions was renewed on 16 December 2016.
With the signing of this agreement, Eni and the trade unions reiterated the centrality of HSE issues, considering them integrated elements in the conduct of productive activities and a commitment to continue to consolidate and disseminate behaviours aimed at enhancing the culture of safety in the workplace.
Among the main contents of the agreement, is a focus on environmental issues and the sharing of joint initiatives between Eni and the trade unions aimed at further enhancing the development and consolidation of a culture of safety in the workplace.
