The private consortium Ecomouv has announced it will dismiss all its 200 employees including 157 working in Metz. The government has decided in October to cancel a multi-million-euro contract with the consortium led by the Italian company Atlantia after scrapping the "ecotax" road toll the consortium was to collect. The Ecomouv company was created with a unique and exclusive mission: the implementation of the partnership agreement signed in 2011 with the State, to collect the ecotax. The tolls were due to be introduced at the start of next year after three months of testing. As a consequence of the government decision, Ecomouv has announced a plan for cessation of its activities and dismissal of all of its 200 jobs. Management and unions have start to negotiate a social plan on 16 December. An agreement is expected for March, at the lastest, and unions hope that the government will contribute to financing the social plan.
