Solidarity is based on a sense of individual responsibility at work, which prevails over self- centered thinking and encourages team work and bringing out the best in each person. It means rejecting management or operational methods geared more to the selfsatisfaction of given individuals rather than the interests of the particular company or the Group as a whole.
