Poland -Jobs cuts in order to restore profit -October 28, 2013

The EU's biggest coal miner, Kompania Weglowa, plans to shed almost half of its 15 mines and cut more than 7,000 jobs by 2020 in a bid to restore profitability. Kompania Weglowa would like to reduce the employment level ultimately to about 50,000 from the more than 57,000 now and has planned to present the restructuring plan to its workers' representatives by 19 November. Trade unions at the company have already said they are prepared to strike over the threat of job losses.
