PSA Peugeot-Citroen in France / To cut another 1500 jobs

According to a union leader, PSA Peugeot-Citroen is considering cutting an additional 1,500 jobs in France in the face of continued production overcapacity.

The cuts would come on top of the 11,200 French positions to be eliminated by PSA by 2015 under its current restructuring plan, according to the union official.

“Our sources internally are telling us that management estimates the overstaffing in France at about 1,500 positions,” Jean-Pierre Mercier, a CGT union official at PSA, said. “They may plan to cut these jobs through voluntary redundancies.”

The CGT union has clashed in the last year with management, opposing the closing of PSA’s Aulnay plant on the outskirts of Paris. The union unsuccessfully filed suits to block CEO Philippe Varin’s restructuring plan to stem losses at the French manufacturer.
