France - Air France trims voluntary redundancy target - March 31, 2016

Air France has communicated to the trade unions the new plan reducing the goals for voluntary redundancies. The plan softens restructuring plans and targets just over 1,600 departures by early 2017.The new voluntary plan involves shedding 1,405 jobs among ground staff and 200 among cabin crew, compared with previous targets of 1,823 and 890 respectively announced in December 2015. Pilots now face no voluntary redundancies, compared with a previous target of 280. In January 2015, Air France dropped a so-called 'Plan B' restructuring project with forced job cuts and tilted its plans towards growth in the wake of the slide in oil prices.
