The management of Collins Aerospace, a company specialised in the production of aeronautical parts (notably parts for the Airbus A320), announced a reorganisation project and 150 job cuts. Collins Aerospace (formerly ‘UTC Aerospace Systems’) is to cut jobs at two sites, at Saint-Ouen-l'Aumône (Val d'Oise, 85 job cuts out of 500 employees and Saint-Marcel near Vernon (Eure, 75 job cuts out of 454 employees). The job cuts should take place between April and December 2021. 

The employees' representatives are now advocating a diversification of activities that might make it possible to maintain employment. Management justifies its decision, partly because of the crisis at COVID-19 (which is reducing profits by €16 to €10 million). However, if COVID-19 has exacerbated the difficulties, the director of the Saint-Ouen-l'Aumône and Vernon sites states that there was already a need to restructure the company's activities.
