The Polish commercial bank Bank Millennium, owned by the Portuguese bank Millennium BCP, announced it will implement a collective dismissal programme affecting up to 260 positions across Poland. The programme will be carried out between 1 February and 31 March 2020 and its conditions will be negotiated with the local trade unions during three meetings scheduled for January 2020. The reduction measure comes as a consequence of the merger and acquisition of Euro Bank, which took place in May 2019.

Bank Millennium was established in 1989 as Bank Inicjatyw Gospodarczych BIG. In 1997, the bank merged with BCP. At the end of the third quarter of 2019, Millennium employed 8,564 staff, including 2,450 employees of Euro Bank.
