"The new number is definitely larger than the other two," he told the German press Agency. "And we need to prevent compulsory redundancies." The works Council, he alleged lack of willingness.

The Corona-crisis is already weak group, with its worldwide, around 300,000 employees under pressure. CEO Ola Källenius had already stressed at the annual General meeting on Wednesday, the last autumn launched austerity program needed to be tightened. Were provided, in addition to a variety of other measures, savings in the personnel area, in the amount of 1.4 billion Euro. But even the rich now. "1.4 billion were the Basis.
