Westrom, provider of subsidized work-schemes for municipalities, has announced that it will cut jobs in the coming years, starting with 200 redundancies in 2012.

Westrom offers various employment schemes for municipalities focused on labour market reintegration and social activation. It is reported that the restructuring is due to a new legislative context and government budget cuts.

It is reported that Westrom aims on finding regular jobs for as many of its redundant employees as possible.
