France - Restructuring at Airbus puts over 1,000 jobs at risk - November 30, 2016

According to trade union Force Ouvriere, restructuring plans at plane-maker Airbus (AIR.PA) could result in at least 1,000 job cuts, which will be spread between technical research, IT, strategy and legal services. Airbus Group announced it would merge with its main plane-making unit, in a move aimed at reducing bureaucracy and simplifying its brand. A European works council meeting scheduled for 1 December 2016 will discuss cutbacks in other services such as human resources, finance, and purchasing.
