Bombardier Transportation has successfully completed its negotiations regarding the company’s reorientation in Germany in agreement with the employee representation. This was announced by the company today outside a meeting of the Bombardier Transportation GmbH Supervisory Board in Berlin. Along with the reconciliation of interests, a redundancy package and a volunteer programme have also now been agreed. This means that the transformation in German is regulated in an economically viable and, at the same time, socially responsible way.
The reorientation, which is expected to be completed by 2020, offers all German locations a long-term and sustainable perspective. The plans also include arrangements to reduce up to 2,200 positions in Germany by 2020, with around a third of them being temporary jobs.
