Description

The Danish based multinational energy distribution company Dong Energy is to cut 350 to 400 jobs.

The restructuring is announced to result from changing market conditions. Earlier this year, this had already led the company to dismiss 324 staff in Denmark.

The company employs about 7,000 staff worldwide.

Update 12-09-2013: After negotiations with worker representatives, the management announced 200 immidiate dismissals that are part of a total of 350 job cuts.
