Renault has trimmed about 2,500 jobs in the
first year of a productivity deal with French unions aimed at
meeting savings targets.
Renault promised last year to protect its French sites in return
for increasing working hours, curbing pay rises and cutting at
least 7,500 jobs by 2016.
Management of the Flins plant near Paris told unions it was
considered cutting more than 400 temporary jobs involved in the
making of Clio 3, Clio 4 and ZOE models, Les Echos said without
giving sources, adding that the decision was not yet taken.
The newspaper said the plan should not contradict the deal with
French unions to increase Renault domestic production by about a
third to 710,000 vehicles by 2016.
Renault was not immediately available for comment.
Renault previously said that the Flins plant was aiming to
produce 82,000 Nissan Micras in 2016 to bolster its car output
