We see employees as one of the most important stakeholders because they are the foundation supporting the daily operations of CPDC. In 2020, CPDC had a total of 1,344 FTEs. Female employees increased from 11.85% in 2014 to 16.38% in 2020, and the number of female supervisors was above 6% of all supervisors. CPDC is dedicated to taking care of every employee through providing a safe and harmonious workplace and supporting their development through comprehensive welfare and career training programs.
Through work, training, and leisure activities, we bring our employees into solidarity and together we create a place that they are proud to identify with. Joining hand-in-hand with our employees, CPDC strives to create higher and sustainable values.
CPDC strives to achieve full compliance with the domestic labor laws and regulations and honors the labor human rights recognized by the international society. Based on these principles, CPDC set up comprehensive management systems and procedures. From employment, remuneration and benefits, education and training, to career development, CPDC set up detailed systems and procedures to guide the relevant practices and makes sure all required practices are enforced down to the last detail. We strive to provide our employees the best work environment, so they can concentrate on working together to maximize their productivity.
Despite sex, age, race, political orientation and religious belief, CPDC offers all employees remunerations based on their abilities, which is usually far better than the minimum standards required by the law. Employees' remuneration includes basic salary and subsidies, bonuses, and other payments required by laws and regulations.
The workers' unions act as the bridge of communication between the management and employees in CPDC. In accordance to the Labor Union Act, CPDC established four workers' unions at each of CPDC's business and manufacturing locations, including the Taipei Headquarters Union, Toufen Plant Union, Dashe Plant Union and Xiaogang Plant Union, who fully represent the employees of CPDC. Each of CPDC's unions is led by a committee formed by nine committee members and a Chairperson is elected among the nine committee members, who acts as the representative of the union. A board of three supervisors is also elected from the members of the union to supervise the operations of the union.
The representatives of CPDC's unions signed the collective agreement with each plant in 2019. The effective period of the collective agreement is three years( from 2019 to 2022).The labor conditions that employee and employer negotiated include working hours, vacation, salary, right and obligation.
To ensure that the employees' voices are heard and responded instantly through effective communication, CPDC calls the representatives of the unions and their employer to a meeting each quarter. In the meeting, representatives from the unions raise their issues on workplace and environmental safety, remuneration and benefits, personnel policies, improvement to the work environment, and so on, and the representatives of the employer side make corresponding responses. In addition, CPDC calls a corporate level employer-employee meeting quarterly as well, which is hosted by the representatives from the employer and employees in rotation and the main discussions include major issues affecting employees at a corporate scale and significant changes in the management and operations that will affect the employees.
