A Panasonic plant based in the eastern town of Krompachy (Košice Region, a region with an unemployment rate between 15-20%) plans to shut down its production of Blu-ray players and recorders, DVD recorders and printed circuit boards (PCB) for TV sets, and move to Plzeň, in the Czech Republic. The end of the production of all video products is scheduled for December 31, with the remaining production ending as of May 2015. As a result, at least 400 people will lose their jobs. The closing of the plant should actually concern 656 permanent employees, with 215 of them to be offered jobs in Plzeň. Trade unions and workers’ representatives heard from the company that it is ready to assist workers in their seeking new jobs while lending a hand in the organising of job fairs that will be attended by leading temp agencies.
