France -Peugeot must continue negotiations -January 29, 2013

Trade unions have been organising monthly strikes and disruptions at the Peugeot Aulnay plant, while management and unions continue to negotiate over the exact number of workers to be fired. Peugeot announced last year (see July newsletter) that the carmaker will be closing the plant, dismissing its 8000 workers. In the meantime the court in Paris has ruled that the negotiations with some of the main suppliers of the carmaker (workers belonging to the subsidiary Faurecia Intérieurs Industries) should continue and have to be finalised before any other measures can be taken (court text only available in French).
