The Austrian Volksbank AG (ÖVAG) is to make 250 employees redundant within the next two years. This was announced after a meeting of the bank's board members on the 15th of December 2011.

The step is part of a reorganisation programme and due to long term losses of the bank which does not have sufficient capital resources. Social plans are being negotiated between the works council and management.
