This Belgian restructuring plan affecting 430 employees is part of the worldwilde restructuring plan of Bayer. The belgian restructuring hits the "polymer" division. There are no direct dismissals, trade unions and management have finally found an agreement on the restructuring plan. The trade unions have obtained the guarantee that in the event of new dismissals before 2008, the allowances to the workers will be equivalent to those of the employees. The company BSI is closing due to this restructuring (see BSI factsheet).
