Unions Filed Suit To Stop Job Cuts Last Month
Embraer's plan to cut some over 4,000 jobs was upheld Wednesday
in a Brazilian court, following a suit brought forth by several of
the company's labor unions. It's unclear what the next step will be
for either side, however.
Several unions representing Embraer workers filed a lawsuit in
as ANN reported, claiming the company failed
to give them proper notice of their intentions to lay off
approximately 4,200 workers worldwide. The group, led by The
Metalworkers Union of São José dos Campos and
Surrounding Region filed the collective lawsuit February 27 with
the 15th Regional Labor Appeals Court.
That lawsuit halted further layoffs at the planemaker... but it
appears that was a temporary stall.
On Wednesday, Embraer issued a terse statement stating "The
Regional Labor Court (Tribunal Regional do Trabalho – TRT) in
Campinas, São Paulo, ruled, today, in favor of maintaining
the lay-offs carried out by Embraer in February. It also determined
the payment of compensations that include some of the proposals
presented by the Company during the hearing held last week.
"Embraer awaits the formal publication of this ruling, in order
to determine its position," the company added.
