Tuesday 2nd May 2017 | 0 Comments

Last October Goodyear Dunlop announced plans to close its Philippsburg tyre plant in southern Germany, and these plans are now official: The tyre maker reports it has agreed to terms for a redundancy plan with the union representing the plant’s 880-strong workforce.

Regarding the plan reached with the IG BCE union, Goodyear Dunlop’s group managing director DACH Jürgen Titz states: “In addition to a fair settlement, we’re working together with a transfer company. This specialises in working together with employees to develop individually-tailored solutions that facilitate their entry into a new occupation.”
