Deputy Gusev announced the upcoming meeting of members of the State Duma with representatives of Wildberries
IN State Duma deal with solving the issue of the decision of the employees of the points issuing orders (PVZ) Wildberries to go on strike, said the first deputy chairman of the State Duma Control Committee Dmitri Gusev. Commenting on the last meeting of deputies with disgruntled employees of the market at Lente.ru, Gusev spoke about the development of a bill aimed at preventing such situations in the future.
On March 14, some of the employees at the Wildberries pick-up point decided to organize to hit. The reason for this was Wildberries’ new policy: now, according to the offer, PVZ holders were deprived of the right to challenge substitutions. In particular, if the buyer returns the defective item to the point of collection, the total cost of the goods is withheld from its owners. In addition, he is required to pay the full price of the product if another item was found in the package received through no fault of his own. According to employees, write-offs for replacements began on March 9.
“Lenta.ru” talked with the protesting employees and questioned them about the reasons for the strike. So, the manager of one of the pick-up points, Denis, claims that 100% of the employee’s salary can be canceled for debts – the man himself accrued a debt of 350,000 rubles to the company in six months. Another PVZ employee, Olga, is also taking part in the strike: she called the working conditions provided by the company “servile” and pointed out that employees are fined for factors beyond their control.
The next day, March 15, according to the media, the strike of the employees continued, at her we’re joining in the cities of eastern Russia.
In an official comment to Lente.ru, a representative of Wildberries said pick-up points continued to operate as usual and information about the strike “did not correspond to reality”. In turn, the editorial Telegram-The Rise channel, citing the marketplace’s news service, said Wildberries was refusing to comply with distribution outlet owners’ requirements due to concerns about declining customer-centricity.
“Yesterday there were reports that due to changes in the terms of the contract with the company, the order issuing points could close and go on strike. Of the approximately 9,000 pick-up points Wildberries has , 3,500 collection points are opened by individual entrepreneurs who are in a contractual relationship with the company. These 3,500 PVZ are what we are talking about. It is bad for the country, because millions of people may not receive their parcels, and secondly, more than three thousand people, individual entrepreneurs, risk being left without means of subsistence, and earning little money from it: according to some information, in the regions it is 20-30 thousand rubles per month,” the MP said.
Having become aware of this situation, we, the faction A Just Russia – For Truth (SRZP) and the State Duma Committee for the Protection of Competition represented by my colleague Valery Hartung, invited representatives of the company Wildberries and representatives of the PVZ at a meeting today. Unfortunately, the Wildberries company has not yet come to the meeting, but (…) they have already confirmed that they are ready to go up
The parliamentarian also referred to the decisions taken by the State Duma Committee and the SRZP faction in connection with the current conflict between the employees of the pick-up point and the market itself.
“We (…) are studying the legal situation that has developed and, if necessary, we are ready to seize Federal Antimonopoly Serviceand law enforcement agencies. We are preparing amendments to the current legislation in order to avoid such situations not only with Wildberries, but also with other markets. Russia (…) Next week there will be a FAS meeting on this issue, and we intend to discuss this situation there. I am sure we can do without sudden moves and resolve this situation through negotiations and agreements,” he added. Gusev
