committee of the european works council of the Airbus Group, which was held yesterday in Blagnac (Haute-Garonne) has confirmed the removal of 1 164 positions, by 2018. In France, 640 posts are concerned, mainly in Suresnes (Hauts-de-Seine) ( read below), as well as in Toulouse (Haute-Garonne) and Marignane (Bouches-du-Rhône). 325 positions will also be transferred. “The management has also announced the creation of 230 jobs in research, mainly in the digitization,” said Thierry Préfol deputy co-ordinator, CFE-CGC Airbus Group. To justify these job cuts, the group stressed the need to streamline governance and maximize its effectiveness. “These cuts have been decided upon in the framework of the Gemini project, which aims 310 MEUR savings by merging the branch of commercial aviation, Airbus with the parent company, Airbus Group. The management wants to improve competitiveness by avoiding duplication of efforts, in a context of increased competition with its rival the american Boeing and the arrival of aircraft manufacturers chinese. The majority trade union Force ouvrière (FO) account on the negotiations, from January to July 2017, to reach a social plan without compulsory redundancies. “There will be a set of measures such as early retirements, reclassifications, mobility, stressed Yvonick Dréno, coordinator FO for Airbus Group. But the finance is more important for Airbus. The company says that it wants to reduce the bureaucracy, but employees whose positions are eliminated are not part of this bureaucracy. “
