France -Job losses at Air France -July 31, 2013

Trade unions officers have made public that Air France plans to cut as many as 3,000 jobs. Air France-KLM already renegotiated pay and conditions with airline staff, cutting 5,122 jobs and restructuring its network to cope with soaring fuel costs, a worsening cargo business and tough competition from Gulf and low-cost carriers. But, a new cost-cutting plan is expected to be outlined in broad terms to the trade unions at a meeting in August, followed by a detailed briefing on October 4. The measures would be implemented in early 2014.
