Description

Autoliv France, subsidiary of the Swedish automotive safety systems manufacturer and suppplier Autoliv, is to cut 164 jobs at its site in Gournay-en-Bray (Seine-Maritime) in response to the decreasing market. The management announced that the job reduction measure would be achieved through a twelve weeks voluntary departure plan. If there are not enough volunteers, the group will then have to dismiss employees until November 2016.

After the announcement, employees have decided to go on strike and ask for a meeting with the group management. Autoliv France has cut 140 jobs in 2011. 140 jobs were lost in 2009 and 85 in 2008.
