Skoda wants to cut 2% of administrative jobs in Czechia this year, not through redundancies, but by not replacing retiring employees, Reuters reports.
Skoda has 42,000 employees worldwide. Although most of them work in the Czech Republic, the company has not released details on the exact number of local employees and how many positions are administrative.
Czech news agency CTK estimates Skoda’s number of Czech employees at 34,000.
Employees unions announced on Thursday that the company wants to reduce ”indirect staff”, those who are not involved in production, by 5% by 2023.
