Tod's will give a bonus of gross €1,400 to the employees in its manufacturing division. It will also cover the costs of health care insurance for employees and their family members if they need a specialist or major surgery, and the expenses for their children's schoolbooks. The Italian fashion conglomerate, with about 3,000 employees, said that it aims to create a rewarding work environment, especially in times of major economic uncertainties, and in the spirit of the company's motto “competitiveness and solidarity.” Some unions opposed the initiative and urged the management to instead sign a labor agreement.
