Romania -Up to 2,500 layoffs at railway company CFR Marfa -November 21, 2013

The state owned railway company CFR Marfa has announced a round of dismissals to prepare the company for privatisation in 2015. After two failed attempts at privatisation, the government agreed with the IMF to restructure the company, cutting expenses drastically. Up to 2,500 workers are expected to be dismissed, with 6,300 keeping their jobs. CFR Marfa will also be forced to sell its old wagons as metal scrap and to halt deliveries to any clients with outstanding payments.
