The Mercedes cuts 10,000 jobs

The most recent OF A SERIES – is Now an epidemic. After the cuts announced in recent months by giants such as GM, Nissan, Jaguar, BMW, Audi, the latest drastic “box” comes from the group Daimler , which plans to make less of thousands of jobs all over the world by the end of 2022. An operation that will be started as soon as they have an agreement on its plans with the unions. Daimler, which produces the cars Mercedes and large commercial vehicles, did not specify how many employees will be ”sacrificed”, but to press sources estimate that there may be more than 10.000. As stated in the official press release, in Germany, where of course the largest number of employees (which are over 300,000 globally), employees will be offered severance and early retirement.

SACRIFICES EMPLOYMENT – Even in this case, according to what says Daimler, the reasons for the diet are to be attributed to the need to free up resources to invest in order to grow and better manage the transition to hybrid cars and electric. A historical phase that is demanding enormous sacrifices in terms of employment. These cuts to jobs will save more than 1 billion euros by the end of 2022, and will include also the suppression of 1,100 positions worldwide, or about 10% of its management. In addition to the cuts of the employment, employees will be offered the opportunity to work fewer hours and there will be a hold on the use of temporary workers.
