Default HP France employees strike over job cuts

Bad weather didn't prevent Hewlett-Packard employees from showing their dissatisfaction over planned job cuts in the company.

On Friday, more than half of employees answered a call to strike that was put out by a group of trade unions, including the Confédération Française des Travailleurs Chrétiens (CFTC) and Confédération Générale du Travail (CGT), according to official figures.

A spokesman for the CGT told silicon.com's sister site, ZDNet France, that the strikers included 90 percent of the employees--350 to 400 people--at HP's site at Ulis in the Essonne region. At Grenoble, 1,200 went on strike, 200 at L'isle d'Abeau in Isère, another 200 at Sophia-Antipolis in Alpes-Maritimes and 300 at the company's French headquarters, in Issy-les-Moulineaux.

Previous Next On the morning of the strike, Patrick Starck, the head of HP France, met with Gérard Larcher, minister for employment. No information has yet become available on how the discussions went.

HP France plans to lay off 1,240 employees as part of a restructuring plan that will affect 10 percent of its workforce globally.

face it, the reason why the economy is so screwed up in France is mainly because of this behaviour and the low work hours

with this attitude, no company wants to have jobs there but the French just don't get it

Most if not all of us know the short work hours in France; however, there are French who want to work longer hours but not allowed. There are always both sides of the story; bottom line as always the regular Joes got screwed.

I am not looking for your understanding; I am looking for you to shut up once awhile; if there is nothing good to say, shut up is the best. Otherwise, all we hear from you are only negative things. Insofar, negative things are the only words coming out from your mouth.
