450 workers leave Qimonda

Qimonda loses Cabelte's investment

This morning the last of three meetings scheduled between the administration of Qimonda and the Union of Electrical Industries took place. The decision to dismiss 450 company employees comes from the meeting, which will be covered by collective dismissal.

The number is less than predicted last week by the company’s management, but the process still deserves much criticism from the unions that assure that, like the workers, they were not expecting this outcome for the company.

Only 230 employees work at Qimonda, of which 130 will enter lay off, probably until May next year, according to RTP.

Before the bankruptcy of the German parent company, the company had about 2,000 workers.
