Additional Information

Łmeat, the Łukowo-based meat processing company, will dismiss 222 workers, with the first redundancies scheduled for April 14, 2006. The redundancies are part of a restructuring package, a reaction to declining demand for the company's products. Redundancies are concentrated in the production and technical departments (151 jobs in total), with further jobs cut in the commercial and finance departments. The security department will be completely dissolved. Some of the affected employees have received offers for cooperation with Łmeat as self-employed.
