Big supplier of AutoVAZ could start a strike

Workers of “Kinelagroplast”, the big supplier of plastic details to AutoVAZ, threaten to start a strike if the management of plant won’t reconsider terms of collective agreement. “We have put forward three requirements: indexation of wages every quarter, changing of work schedule and changing of the payment order”, - the labour union informed “RBK daily”. They also underlined that it is the first stage of negotiations with management and if it won’t be finished successful then it could be a strike in the enterprise. “At the present time the management accepted two requirements: changing of work schedule and indexation of wages every half of year”, - explained in the labour union. But we still could not agree about the payment order.

“Kinelagroplast” is the supplier of AutoVAZ, GM-AutoVAZ and Ford and the enterprise was going to start deliveries to Russian enterprise Volkswagen. Representatives of AutoVAZ remarked that they buy details of interior of cabin, components of system of windscreen washer and systems of heating, ventilation and conditioning of car at this supplier. But companies didn’t reveal volumes of deliveries and they explained it as a commercial secret. And problems of supplier won’t influence on work of AutoVAZ, said a representative of the plant. As informed the source of “RBK daily” in AutoVAZ, system of deliveries in the plant was organized so, that in case of problems at any supplier, the plant could “close these positions”.

Dependence of supplier and buyer is mutual and labour union of “Kinelagroplast” understands it very good. It was underlined that the majority part of products of plant is being delivered to AutoVAZ. “AutoVAZ makes big orders and if it will be stopped because of strike then we will lose a big client”, - explained in labour union.

Car producers become frequently hostages of problems of their suppliers. For example, in 2009 “GAZ Group” had to stop the production of “GAZel” vehicles for a week because of Zavolzhsk motor plant that is a part of Sollers, which delivers engines to GAZ, informed about the stoppage of assembly line of their production. At the same year AutoVAZ was closed to soppage of plant because some suppliers didn’t agree with purchase policy of plant and they threatened by products delivery stoppage if their conditions of agreement wouldn’t be implemented. There were problems with suppliers at local producers of Japan because of earth quake in the previous year.  It concerned also Russia – at the end of May the Nissan plant near St. Petersburg stopped the assembly line because of shortage of components that are to be delivered from Japan.
