Bike producer Campagnolo has announced a relocation of a part of its production to Romania. As a result 68 out of 399 workers of the Vicenza plant will be dismissed. The management decision to lay-off 68 people caused a real turmoil and workers marched on to strike. The trade unions object to the plan, not only for the loss of jobs and partial demolition of the historical site of Campagnolo, but also because the plan does not include any real intention to invest to make the Vicenza plants more efficient and increase competitiveness, in order to face the new challenges of the global market.
