The management of the factory is expected to announce next week the creation of a night shift in the transition to 3/8 and increasing the pace.
The pace picks up in the Renault plant in Sandouville, near Le Havre. Manufacturing speed increase on May 2, from 33 to 35 vehicles per hour (against 30 last summer), as announced at the last works council. A third team, at night, will also be in place to meet the demand for Nissan. Official announcements should be made in this direction, around the 20th of April by the director Jean-Luc Mabire.
But already, unions rejoice. “This is good news. Today, we made a lot of overtime in the evening and at least two Saturdays a month. It will relieve employees” satisfied Vincent Lefrançois, Secretary General Workers Force, who hopes that the creation of this new team will be accompanied by recruitment. Recruitment in CDI, “In 2015, we had 183 CDI recruitment. Of the 500 reported for all French plants early in the year, he would remain 70-80 to be filled “, says the union. He hoped that those positions back primarily to interim (they are currently 1100 to 1600 CDI).
