Additional Information

The enterprise Comansa, specialized in the manufacture of flat-top cranes, has applied for the Redundancy Procedure affecting 55 employees (14% of its total workforce). Furthermore, the enterprise has applied for a working time reduction of 30% for the rest of the staff.

The employee's representatives reject the measure, and have asked the labour authority to achieve an agreement with the enterprise aiming to avoid the measures. It is reported that even greater cuts could be faced, reducing the workforce from now 388 to 99 within the next three years.

A timeline for the redundancies is not known yet.
