The reduction in staff was announced yesterday by the company to employee representatives explaining that if the 40% drop in work activities expected in the coming years due to the health crisis should result in the loss of 1,800 jobs, the measures that the company intends to agree with the unions could instead save about 3,900 of the current 4,500 jobs.
