Labor/Management Relations
LA4
Percentage of employees covered by collective bargaining agreements
As of May 31, 2009
  • We had ten collective bargaining agreements with unions covering approximately 93% of our hourly employees in the U.S. and Canada.
  • Agreements with eight unions covered all employees in Brazil, representing 64% of our international employees. More than one agreement may govern our relations with each of these unions.
  • We also had collective bargaining agreements with unions covering employees in several other countries.
LA5
Minimum notice period regarding significant operational changes including whether it is specified in collective agreements
The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN Act) is a United States law that protects employees, their families and communities by requiring most employers with 100 or more employees to provide sixty (60) calendar day advance notification of plant closing and mass layoffs of employees. Employees entitled to this notification include salary and hourly wage personnel. This is not a separate requirement within our collective agreements because it is already U.S. law.

In Canada our collective bargaining units have specific agreements regarding notification based on the length of the operational turndown.

Occupational Health and Safety
LA6
Percentage of total workforce represented in formal joint management-worker health and safety committees.
Our union contracts in Canada and the United Stated all require a formal joint management worker health and safety committee. Union employees are elected by their peers. These committees are focused on ensuring regulatory and safety requirements are followed.

We had ten collective bargaining agreements in FY 2009 with unions covering approximately 93% of our hourly employees in the U.S. and Canada. In Brazil we have eight unions covering all employees in Brazil, representing 64% of our international employees.

LA7
Rates of injury, occupational diseases, lost days and absenteeism and total number of work-related fatalities by regions
Mosaic follows OSHA standards to calculate recordable injury frequency rates on a global basis. An OSHA recordable injury is an occupational injury or illness that requires medical treatment more than simple first aid. All safety data collected between June 1, 2004 through October 21, 2004 was from our pre merger organizations of IMC Global Inc. and Cargill Fertilizer, Inc. Data from October 22, 2004 and forward is specific to The Mosaic Company.

Mosaic RIFR
RIFR (Recordable Injury Frequency Rate) = # of injuries X 200,000 / hours worked

Figure 1 Mosaic made significant improvement from 2004 to 2005, but has remained flat since. In 2009 Mosaic developed a new corporate safety strategy and began implementation to improve our safety performance.

Contractor RIFR
RIFR (Recordable Injury Frequency Rate) = # of injuries X 200,000 / hours worked

Figure 2 This table measures the injury frequency rate for contractors working on Mosaic property. The perceived excellent performance in 2004 is actually attributable to the lack of sufficient data collection from our contractors. This was improved in 2005. The 2007-2008 data shows slight improvement from 2005 and 2006.

LA8
Education, training, counseling, prevention, and risk-control programs in place to assist workforce members and their families or community members regarding serious diseases
Mosaic promotes the well being of our employees through a variety of programs. Our "Live for Life" program addresses health-related issues such as diabetes, skin cancer and heart disease. We also partner with our health insurance providers to offer continuing education on health related issues. Mosaic has an extensive employee assistance program that is available to all full time employees and their families.

Our focus on safety extends beyond our facilities and into the community. Mosaic is a founding sponsor of Safe Saskatchewan, a public-private provincial initiative with the objective of achieving a continuous reduction in the number of unintentional injuries in Saskatchewan. The goal is to make people aware that all injuries are predictable and preventable.

LA9
Health and safety topics covered in formal agreements with trade unions
Throughout our global operations, we implement safety policies consistent with those adopted by OSHA or MSHA, or with local requirements if more protective, for employees and contractors, including required OSHA or MSHA classes, based on work environment.

Mosaic believes all employees should be empowered to make safety-related decisions, and we encourage employees to communicate openly in the work environment about safety. We also sponsor a toll-free, anonymous hotline that employees may use to report concerns about safety.

Our formal collective bargaining agreements in North America require a combined company and union safety committee. The collective bargaining agreements cover OSHA/MSHA regulations as they relate to our industry, including: personal protective equipment, initial and refresher training for OSHA/MSHA regulations and safety inspections by our joint committee. Our collective bargaining agreements also specify that no employee will be required to work in any place that endangers the employee's life or health. Mosaic's management reviews any recommendations from the joint safety committees and implements changes as appropriate.

Our Brazil operations utilize a different performance review system for all employees. In addition, our Argentina, Mexico and Chile operations have now incorporated the EDGE performance review process.
