Romania -Ford deal reduces mass redundancies -March 07, 2015

Ford has annulled the layoffs for 170 employees at its plant in Craiova, by reducing their work schedule.

After negotiations with the factory’s trade union carmaker Ford has annulled the layoffs for 170 employees at its plant in Craiova, by reducing their work schedule. However, the management has not yet announced what the reduced work schedule would mean. In November 2014, the company announced it would lay off 680 of its 3,200 employees, due to falling demand on the European car market. Almost 500 employees volunteered to leave by the beginning of this year. Workers’ representatives have been trying to determine the employer to limit the layoffs to nearly 500.
