Redundant staff at closed power plant receive raft of measures

Fourteen staff who will be made redundant by the closure of a power plant in the south of Luxembourg have signed a social plan, ensuring a financial and social package of measures.

The closure of the Twinerg electric turbo-gas-vapour centre in Esch-sur-Alzette was announced in July this year.

Union OGBL said in a press release published on Thursday that a social plan had been signed by the firm and staff delegation members.

Among the measures agreed for staff in the plan are extra-legal benefits related to seniority, compensation linked to family situation and the possibility to extend the notice period for employees who have not found work after the legal notice period.

According to OGBL, five people have received a job offer from a company owned by one of the shareholders of Twinerg (ie Engie Group, Enovos and ArcelorMittal Group).
