In a first phase, 142 jobs will be scrapped, but by 2014 this number will reach 310.
The management will try to limit the number of dismissals, hoping that a number of employees will leave on a voluntary basis taking early retirement. "However, a number of employees will be fired. This cannot be avoided when you are talking about 310 people. You can't expect all of them to leave on a voluntary basis", explains Andres Vandereycken of the socialist trades union.
