A source familiar with the matter said that the aircraft manufacturer, Airbus, is in talks with trade unions on a plan to lay off jobs due to Corona, APA reports citing Saudi24.

The source confirmed that the European aircraft manufacturer, Airbus, is in talks with trade unions on a plan to permanently write off a number of jobs in the face of declining production due to the collapse of demand for aircraft, due to the repercussions of the Corona virus.

And Airbus confirmed that it will announce the details of the job write-off plan during a media conference next week, which could include about 10% of the total number of jobs in the company, in line with the reduction decided by the American Boeing Company competing for its workforce.

It is noteworthy that “Airbus” depends on the government-backed rental plans in France, Germany and Britain to reduce employee costs after it previously asked employees for a 10-day leave.
