Collective dismissal for 190 employees. The Jabil company communicated this referring to the redundancies of the Marcianise site (Caserta). For several years now – reads a note issued by the company – the Jabil site in Marcianise had to deal with a challenging economic environment, decreasing volumes and underutilized resources. To address the situation, Jabil worked with union organizations and stakeholders, both local and national, on a voluntary outplacement program to offer employees an opportunity for re-employment in other local businesses interested in hiring Jabil employees.
The American company, which manufactures electronic components and circuits, points out that the companies that participated in the re-employment program have applied for more workers than the redundant Jabil employees. Jabil – added the company – has also made available significant economic resources both for employees, as incentives for the exodus, and for the companies that will hire Jabil employees, to support their business plans. All this was done with the aim of facilitating the restructuring process as much as possible and promoting a positive outcome for all. Despite these efforts and Jabil’s ongoing commitment, to date there has unfortunately been a disappointing result on adhesions to reuse, despite the numerous proposals received, which does not allow us to solve the problem.
In light of this, from next 25 May, the expiry date of Cigo, Jabil will proceed to the collective dismissal of the identified employees, provided that they have not adhered to the outplacement and incentive schemes offered. The company underlines that opportunities have been offered to the 190 redundant employees both in terms of redeployment and redundancy incentives. This development – Jabil points out – is in no way a negative assessment of the hard work and commitment of Marcianise employees.
