As part of its reorganisation, French pharmaceutical company Sanofi (with 105,000 employees worldwide) plans to cut 900 jobs by 2015 in France. The restructuring will take place in the research and production of vaccines.
Unions fear far more layoffs and are boycotting council meetings. The background of job losses is that Sanofi wants to save € 2 billion by 2015 due to declines in the generics business sector.
