Some of the staff of the Gasperich-based press group responded to the LCGB’s call. By this action, the union wishes to denounce the complete blocking of negotiations on the social plan.

(ER) – “No desire to save jobs. No willingness to negotiate serious accompanying measures and acceptable financial compensation. ” Céline Conter, General Secretary of the LCGB, recalled the main demands of the staff within the framework of the social plan announced by the management of the company on September 17.

“Negotiating a dignified social plan” is one of the union’s priorities. Discussions between employee representatives and company management are deadlocked. No agreement has yet been reached between the two parties with two short weeks left before a conciliation.

About a hundred people took part in the protest picket this Thursday morning in Gasperich.

For the management, “the union’s demands are completely unrealistic” and “impossible to finance to the point of endangering the company”. As a reminder, the press group based in Gasperich, which notably publishes the Luxemburger Wort, plans to part with about 80 people, a total that has been “reduced to 74 employees” further specifies management.

Luxembourg’s leading media group and publisher of titles Luxemburger Wort, Telecran, Contacto and Luxembourg Times, was acquired last April by the multimedia group Mediahuis NV, currently present in Belgium, the Netherlands and Ireland. 105 journalists are currently under contract with Saint-Paul Luxembourg.
