Additional Information

Revoz, a car manufacturer owned by French Renault, will terminate the night shift and cancel the contract with temporary work agencies. The decision will affect between 400 and 450 agency workers, mainly foreign workers from Bosnia and Hercegovina. Termination of their employments will become valid in June. Revoz currently employs 3,150 workers. The Slovenian factory continues production of Clio, Twingo and Smart Forfour and will initiate production of electric Twingo in the following months. As a consequence of layoffs, its output will decrease by 150 units to around 600 cars per day.
