Burgo mulls 46 job cuts at Verzuolo LWC paper mill in Italy; workers announce strike

Wednesday, Apr 08, 2015

Burgo plans to change the shift system from a continuous to a semi-continuous cycle on the 165,000 tonne/yr PM 8 at its Verzuolo lightweight coated (LWC) paper mill in northwestern Italy from June 1. The move may lead to 46 job cuts across all departments at the factory, according to a source at the Fistel-Cisl trade union.

Negotiations with employee representatives were due to start after Easter. Fistel-Cisl said it considered the decision "unacceptable" both in content and in method, since it said there are no guarantees for the future of the machine or the mill and since the company started the proceedings unilaterally.
