The group announced to offer internal relocations to 26 of its workers, lowering the total dismissals to 235. According the union CFDT, the management wants to launch a voluntary departure plan, proposes an allowance of 15 months of salary per employees (in average, about €38,000) and a budget for training of about €700,000.
