May 26, 178 Ukrainian citizens went to Poland via a charter flight of Ukraine International Airlines (UIA) in order to conduct seasonal works. This was announced by Tomasz Bogdewicz, CEO of Gremi Personal employment company, in a comment to Ukrinform.
"After the plane landed, 178 Ukrainian migrant workers were transported by bus to about 10 places for a 14-day quarantine," Bogdewicz.
According to him, the flight was free for all passengers.
40% of them will work in Poland for the first time. Long-term employment agreements have been signed with all Ukrainians. They will be involved, in particular, in the consumer and logistics spheres.
Gremi Personal is going to analyze and determine whether the next flights will be needed.
As we reported earlier, on May 24, Czech diplomatic missions in Ukraine resumed work of consular departments, aimed at issuing work visas.
"After repeated negotiations with the Ukrainian authorities, we managed to reach an agreement and partially resume the visa process. The Czech economy needs Ukrainian workers. We are trying to simplify the situation for Czech health care and agriculture, which lack seasonal workers from abroad," Czech Foreign Minister Tomáš Petříček said.
