The group's French unit has confirmed the cut backs in its sales department

The French unit of Coca Cola Enterprises (CCE) has confirmed it is significantly cutting the size of its commercial division, but stressed there will be “no compulsory redundancies” after an agreement with employee representatives was struck. 

A total of 171 sales and marketing posts are being axed as part of a rationalisation move. Staff and the company have been in consultation since the plans were first revealed last October

 “The main point of the agreement reached is that there will be no compulsory redundancies," a CCE spokesperson told just-drinks today (31 July).  “Each member of staff affected by the cutbacks will be offered a job elsewhere in the company or have the possibility of voluntary redundancy.”

CCE France, which is responsible for bottling Coca-Cola products for Western Europe, has a total workforce of around 2,800 staff.

Commenting on the agreement, a senior union spokesman said: “One's never satisfied when jobs are lost and people leave the firm but at least forced lay-offs have been averted."
