Additional Information

On 22 September 2011, car manufacturer PSA Peugeot-Citroën announced the cut of 115 positions at its plant in Aulnay-sous-Bois and confirmed the 180 job losses announced last year for the logistic site of Melun-Sénart. The future of the plant in Aulnay is uncertain after 2014.

The management proposed 115 voluntary departures until 2012. Another 300 temporary workers (out of 350) will not have their contract renewed. For the employees working at Melun-Sénart the company will offer employment opportunities in other plants of the group.
