France: Employees stage protest over Renault factory closure

Employees as well as union representatives held a protest outside Renault's Choisy-le-Roi plant in Paris on Monday to denounce the site's planned closure. Unions reps say the factory is planning a complete relocation of personal and equipment to Flins, an existing Renault car factory in mainland France. «Today, what we want is to know what our future will be. What jobs will be created there? Today, in terms of employment and what they are offering, it is difficult to see how the staff of Flins and that of Choisy can all work on these projects,» said Philippe, a union representative. As part of a plan to find money for fixed cost savings, Renault had earlier announced that it would cut 15,000 job positions worldwide reportedly including 4,600 in France.
