Labor Relations and Dialogue

FENC ensures harmonious labor relations with robust communication channels.

FENC engages in consistent employee dialogues through multiple channels to build cohesion and enhance employee performance. The Company conducts the employee satisfaction survey and seeks assistance from external consultants for insights on trends in the labor market and to cater to employee needs with precision.

Adhering to FENC Human Rights Policy, the Company respects the rights of employees from all production sites to form labor unions at their discretion. Units with established labor unions shall discuss the details in union agreements once every 3 years. Union recommendations are respected, fully discussed and enacted upon resolutions. In addition, labor management meetings are held annually with minutes made public. Major policy decisions are deliberated after departmental managers and the labor union conduct thorough discussions during the meeting. Employees may express their opinions to the management through internal channels, including the comment box and executive meetings. The Company is determined to maintain rapport with employees and avoid labor disputes.

U.S.

There are 15 labor unions among all FENC sites. With the exception of U.S. locations, all employees, excluding managers involved in executive decision making, may join the labor union. All hourly-waged workers in the U.S. must join the union upon completing the probation period, and the hiring of non-union workers at the plants is not allowed. Union participation at all production sites has reached 95%. Currently, 4 FENC sites do not have organized labor unions, but have been maintaining harmonious labor relations with labor relations meetings held quarterly and minutes made public. Agreements made during the labor management meetings offer umbrella protection over 100% of the permanent employees with union membership. At FENC sites without union representation, the coverage is 100% of all permanent employees.
