The Girondins de Bordeaux football club has announced a plan to cut 10% of its workforce, that is 30 administrative and commercial positions out of a total of 300 employees. This plan will be implemented through voluntary redundancies (accord de rupture conventionnelle collective) according to the management, is provided for in a collective bargaining termination agreement which has been the subject of negotiations in recent weeks with trade unions and employee representatives. The management explains that it has not opened a precise list of functions to be removed, but that it should be clear by mid-December which candidates opted for voluntary departure, and how this will happen (mobility leave, assistance with training or setting up a business,  and so on).
