Dutch publisher Wolters Kluwer has announced the loss of 111 jobs in France. The job cuts are part of a restructuring programme affecting all employees in France between October and December 2009.

In the meantime, the management expressed its will to achieve its goal via voluntary departures and internal transfers. This plan is in line with the earlier announced strategy of Wolters Kluwer. Negotiations with the trade unions and the company's works council have started, and a strike is planned for June 25th and 26th. Wolters Kluwer France is currently struggling under declining advertising revenues.

Wolters Kluwer is a Netherlands-based company that provides products and services globally for professionals in the health, tax, accounting, corporate, financial, legal, and regulatory sectors. It maintains operations in Europe, North America and Asia Pacific.
