Europe – Rio Tinto – To cut 30% of workforce

Rio Tinto is planning to cut costs and jobs in Europe by 30 per cent by the end of 2013, a union official says after meeting with company executives.

“They told us that we have to reach a reduction of costs on the order of 30 per cent. This announcement will certainly worry employees,” said Veronique Roche, a representative of the CFE-CGC union and the secretary of the European works council of Rio Tinto France.

Staff at Rio Tinto sites in London, Paris and in Voreppe in the French region of Isere should see job cuts “including the activities of Rio Tinto Aluminium on the order of 30 per cent on average by the end of 2013,” she added.

The Anglo-Australian miner, which cut 220 jobs in Europe last year, plans to complete its review by the end of the year.

Rio Tinto employs nearly 2700 people in Europe, according to Roche..
