FRANCE: Orangina plans further job cuts
Orangina-Pampryl, which was acquired by Cadbury-Schweppes in October 2001, is said to be planning 110 job cuts at two of its bases in France.
According to staff union sources, the redundancy programme entails laying-off around 40 administrative staff at Orangina's HQ at
Aix-les-Milles, near Marseilles, as well 70 sales personnel, some of which are based at Schweppes France HQ near Paris.
The unions say it is only a matter of time before one of the two HQs is axed.
However, Orangina said only 30 job cuts had been confirmed at this stage as negotiations with the company's works committee continued over the next month.
"There could even be some new posts created," an Orangina spokeswoman said.
Orangina is already shedding 48 jobs as a result of the closure of its plant at Fagersheim, in Alsace, by the end of the year,
It also has plants in the Paris suburbs as well as near Lyon and Dijon.
