Spanish construction company FCC is planning to dismiss 1,267 employees. This amounts to 40% reduction of its entire workforce.

The company has now opened a one month negotiation period aiming to discuss the measure with the unions.

Earlier this year, the company had already dismissed 842 employees.

UPDATE 10/12/2014: FCC has proposed the unions to reduce the number of workers dismissed by 12%. Accordingly, the adjustment would affect 1,117 employees. Unions have not accepted the offer and called for a strike to be held on 10 December. 

UPDATE 16/12/2014: FCC and the unions have achieved an agreement which reduces the number of workers dismissed to 875. Dismissed workers will receive a compensation equal to 31 days per year worked.
