MAN reduces short-time working at German sites

Commercial-vehicle provider MAN Nutzfahrzeuge is set to significantly reduce short-time working arrangements at its German sites in the second half of 2010.

The growing demand for trucks, buses and engines will bring short-time working at the engine plant in Nuremberg to an end on 30 June.

The number of short-time working days at MAN’s truck sites in Munich and Salzgitter will also be cut in the second half of the year.

The number of short-time working days in production is to decrease from around 50 in the first six months of the year to an average of 20 in the second half, while administration will see short-time working days diminish from 40 to 19.
