Germany -EADS cuts jobs -December 07, 2013

EADS, the maker of Airbus, is set to announce a draconian restructuring plan to unions that may include thousands of job cuts and strain relations with shareholders Germany and France. The company's defence and space operations, both suffering a drop in orders, require urgent attention, not the successful Airbus business. In November 2013 trade union IG Metall held an industrial action as a warning against the company's plans. In a letter to the government, unions in France wondered why a company ‘with a 650 billion euro order book was not able to maintain job sites.’
