For the first time in its history EVRAZ introduces the joint portfolio of the EVRAZ Vítkovice Steel (Czech Republic) and EVRAZ Palini e Bertoli (Italy) in the framework of Italian “Made in Steel” trade fair.
The company EVRAZ VÍTKOVICE STEEL, a.s. and the unions ZO OS KOVO Vítkovice Ocelárna a Válcovny (the metalworker’s federation at the Vítkovice steel mill and rolling mill) have reached a consensus about the parameters of their collective agreement for 2013 – 2018.
The term for re-start of the temporarily closed steel plant of EVRAZ VÍTKOVICE STEEL, a.s. has been set for January 3, 2013, provided that particular circumstances such as adverse weather conditions do not prevent it.
For the second time this year representatives of non-profit organizations in the Moravian-Silesian Region met with EVRAZ Charity Fund (ECF) management to sign a charitable contribution designation, representing in total 5.3 million CZK to support their activities. From a total of 89 applications requesting 13 million CZK, the Board of Trustees selected 41 projects aiming to help the Moravian-Silesian Region. Together with the selected projects from the first round of ECF funds allocated in the spring, a total of 9 million CZK to support 73 projects dealing with disabled children, education and sports were allocated. In addition to the aforementioned projects, ECF funded curative and therapeutic stays of children from the Mariánské Hory and Hulváky districts totalling almost 1 million CZK.
Representatives of EVRAZ VÍTKOVICE STEEL and Třinecké železárny placed a bet on which of their teams will rank higher after the opening round of the playoff. The wager was agreed upon during the steelproducer derby at a game between HC VÍTKOVICE STEEL and HC Oceláři Třinec on Sunday, December 9th, 2012, in Ostrava‘s ČEZ Aréna. Each party staked 30,000 CZK. The winner will take the prize money of 60,000 CZK and put it towards a selected regional charity project.
