According to recent media reports, some 500 temporary workers at Volkswagen Navarra, a Spanish subsidiary of the German car manufacturer, will see their contracts terminated prematurely. They will leave the company on 2 December 2011 instead of 12 December due to the discontinuation of two shifts.

Another 200 temporary contracts for weekend shifts have also expired. Some 400 temporary workers are left at the firm, with contracts running until 23 December. In line with previous commitment, the firm intends to turn 300 temporary workers into permanent employees before the end of the year. The workers leaving the firm will join the employment exchange which gives them priority for employment in the future.
