Reorganisation plan presented by Reno de Medici entails job cuts of up to 182 position across four sites in Italy, trade union Slc-Cgil says.
Italian recycled board manufacturer Reno de Medici (RDM) prepares to reshuffle sheet cutting and distribution activities in Italy and has presented a reorganisation plan involving job cuts across four of its Italian sites. According to employeee representatives, the plan entails a reduction of up to 182 positions, 63 of which would be cut at the Villa Santa Lucia board mill.
Slc-Cgil, one of the Italian trade unions which are negotiating with the company, reports that RDM plans to concentrate its sheet cutting operations at Santa Giustina and Magenta mills in future while sheeting activities at the Villa Santa Lucia and Aprilia facilities are to be stopped.
The last country-level meeting between RDM and the trade unions was held on 5 December but did not yield any results. The trade unions rejected the company’s reorganisation plans in response to which RDM has withdrawn from talks, a Slc-Cgil spokesman explained.
Reno de Medici did not comment on the subject matter.
