PJSC UMCC presented Irshansk community with a company dormitory
18.09.2017Now the employees of Irshansk Mining and Processing Plant, a subsidiary of PJSC UMCC, as well as Irshansk residents will be able to own a home they've been dreaming of for many years.
At the end of August, the village council of Irshansk accepted on its balance a company dormitory owned by IMPP, a subsidiary of PJSC UMCC, located at 24 Sadova Street in Irshansk. It is home to about 300 people with about a third of them working at our plant.
The residents of the company dormitory have long sought to obtain ownership of this housing and only PJSC UMCC considered their wishes. Over the recent years, Irshansk village council has received appeals from the residents of the village, who resided in this family-type dormitory, which was on the balance of IMPP, a subsidiary of PJSC UMCC, about their desire to privatize the living quarters in which they live.
The management of the company considered and agreed with the wishes of the community and its employees, who wanted to obtain ownership of the apartment in the dormitory as such right is provided for them by Ukrainian legislation, specifically Part 2 of Article 4 of the Law of Ukraine ‘On Ensuring the Enforcement of Housing Rights of Residents of Dormitories' dated September 4, 2008 No. 500-VI, which came into force on January 1, 2009, that stipulates that citizens residing in dormitories owned by enterprises, institutions, organizations, formed in the process of corporatization or privatization, acquire the right to privatize occupied dwellings after a transfer of such dormitories into communal property, provided that they actually reside in such dormitories lawfully and for a long time (at least five years) .
Meeting the desires of Irshansk residents, living in the dormitory, Irshansk village council has developed a Provision on Privatization of Dormitories on the Territory of the Village, under which the residents of the dormitory, factually living in it, have the right to privatize living rooms in such dormitory after it is transferred to the communal property of the village's territorial community.
That is why, when Irshansk village council appealed to the management of PJSC UMCC, its subsidiary IMPP with the proposal to consider the issue of transferring the family-type dormitory at Sadova Street into communal property to the Irish unified territorial community, the company management did not object to such an initiative.
And the order of the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine No. 1041 of July 20 of this year on transferring the family-type dormitory from the balance of PJSC United Mining and Chemical Company to communal ownership of the Irish united territorial community actually became the start of the process Irshansk residents were waiting for for so long.
On August 17, the commission on the issue of the free transfer of the dormitory, which included representatives of the Irshansk village council, Irshansk Communal Enterprise, the ministry, IMPP, subsidiary of PJSC UMCC, signed the act of receiving and transferring the dormitory with its property, and on August 23 the transition of the dormitory to the balance of the village council was approved by local deputies. Every year, the company spent more than UAH 2 million on the maintenance of this facility. The book value of the dormitory at the time of acceptance and transfer was UAH 8.175 million.
“We were sympathetic to the desire of our employees and other residents of the village who have lived in the dormitory many years, to acquire ownership of these residential areas. We hope that soon they will exercise their right to privatization and will feel the fullness of the feeling of being the owners of their home. Such steps towards our employees are needed to increase labor productivity and loyalty to the company,” comments Oleksandr Hladushko, Acting Chairman of the Board of PJSC UMCC.
