Carrefour could cut 1,500 jobs in its hypermarkets

The distribution group Carrefour wants to negotiate with the unions for the establishment of a conventional collective break allowing the elimination of 1500 positions.

This is another news that will not reassure Carrefour employees .

According to Le Figaro , the distribution group wants to remove 1,500 of its 60,000 positions in hypermarkets French as part of its transformation plan, via a conventional collective termination agreement (RCC).

Contrary to a social plan, the measure allows to separate from employees without justifying an economic motive . But none of the starts can be forced.
