Luxembourg -Luxguard workers vote against pay cut -October 10, 2012

Eight in ten employees at the Dudelange plant of glass manufacturer Luxguard voted against a pay cut offered to avoid the plant’s closure. Employees were asked to support an 18% wage cut and a waiver of their production bonus. Trade union OGBL stated it advised against pay cuts as long as Luxguard refused to guarantee the continuation of employment. Luxguard previously said it would be forced to close the plant in the absence of a wage cut, but in reaction to the rejection of the offer announced it would be referring the case to central management.
