Furshet Group labour conditions research, Ukraine – EBRD AGM Issue Paper
Briefing | 10 May 2010
In 2007 the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) approved a USD 90 million loan to the second largest supermarket operator in Ukraine, the Furshet Group, for the regional expansion of its chain in Ukraine and Moldova. From 58 supermarkets in 2007 the retail network has grown to 98, with four new ones to be opened in the near future in Ukraine, and nine in Moldova.
A research commissioned by Bankwatch aimed to cover issues related to working conditions at Furshet supermarkets such as labour conditions in general, employment conditions, working hours and the system of rewards, discrimination practices (including gender discrimination), labour safety and occupational health, and trade unions at the supermarkets.
