  • Due to the jump in prices to all goods and services, foodstuff, materials and mining equipment in Ukraine, the scheduled logistics of collieries and affiliated “DTEK Pavlograd Coal” companies are under threat of work desruption, a coal production and mine working program along with funding of social, economic and cultural program is violated.
  • Sanatorium and spa treatment, families’ and childen’s health improvement are also under threat.
  • PJSC “DTEK” and “DTEK Pavlograd Coal” have guaranteed the complete fulfilment of their obligations and commitments under Collective Agreement both the performance of production program and timely wages payment and health improvement since the second qurter of 2014 and during 5 months of 2015 based on the Unions demands and proposals regarding nonadmission of social and economic situation deterioration at collieries.
