Although the company currently has no trade unions, but GC does not restrict our employees to establish trade unions or becoming union members. However, GC has a Welfare Committee that serves as an independent mechanism to provide employees with collective bargaining powers. The Welfare Committee responds to employee concerns regarding our work environment, offers a grievance mechanism, determines benefits, and handles complaints about unfair labor practices. All employees are eligible to nominate and become representatives to be candidates in the election of Welfare Committee.
Welfare Committee members are selected from a pool of volunteer candidates. There are a total 50 members on the Welfare Committee, each of whom serves a two-year term. 100% of our employees are covered under Welfare Committee to bargain labor and welfare aspect with company. All employees enable to report concerns to employee representatives in Welfare Committee throughout whistleblower system, email, mail, intranet and direct reporting. The concerns are discussed in the Welfare Committee meeting quarterly as required by the Thai Labor Protection Act B.E. 2541.
The Welfare Committee meets regularly with GC management to find solutions to specific issues and monitor progress and results. It ensures fair and equitable treatment of all employees in terms of health, welfare, compensation, and benefits.
